The Garden Theatre has announced it will produce a one-night only concert titled Not A Day Goes By, honoring the contributions made to the musical theatre canon by the late Stephen Sondheim. The concert will be performed January 30, 2022 at 7:30pm at Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston (3400 Main St.) in the heart of midtown.
The Garden Theatre held its inaugural production, Into The Woods, in October 2021, just a month before Sondheim’s death at the age of 91. The local production was hailed by critics and audiences alike with BroadwayWorld calling it “charming,” the Houston Chronicle stating it had a “level of accessible fun,” and CultureMap and the Houston Chronicle naming it one of the top shows to see in Houston for the fall of 2021.
Not a Day Goes By reunites the Into The Woods cast (the last Houston cast of a Sondheim piece while he was living) along with select Houston vocalists for a one-night only engagement highlighting his work. The concert will span from his most popular shows to some of his less performed works including Passion, Merrily We Roll Along, and Follies, among others.
Stephen Sondheim passed away on November 26, 2021. He is considered the king of musical theatre, having changed the landscape with his visionary pieces that challenged how a musical can sound and be structured. Sondheim’s works span seven decades and includes the legendary West Side Story (with a score by Leonard Bernstein), Sweeney Todd, Into The Woods, Sunday In The Park With George, and Company and many more.
