Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents’ 1964 musical is a political satire about conformity and the ostracisation of those considered ‘other’ in society. Set in a fictional town where the government controls everything, even the miracles, this fast paced and off-the-wall musical is as hilarious as it is subversive. The musical opened at the Majestic Theatre on Broadway on April 4, 1964. and closed after a run of 12 previews and 9 performances.  The show’s original run marked the stage musical debut of Angela Lansbury.
