Queer(ing) Sondheim With Dr. Scott F. Stoddart

Hosted By: Central Synagogue

We’d like to propose a toast: to Sondheim, and to the wondrous complexity of his queerness. This Pride month, join Dr. Scott Stoddart & Central staff member Jake Stepansky for a riveting, rich, rambunctiously resonant conversation about all things Queer Sondheim. What does it mean for a musical to be “queer”? How have directors drawn out this queerness in their interpretations of Sondheim’s work? How do the queer instances that have always permeated Sondheim’s work resonate for gay audiences? Drawing on intensively-researched Sondheim scholarship and of-the-moment lived experience, our hosts will kibbitz and question and query and queer Sondheim. Grab a vodka stinger (or your non-alcoholic beverage of choice!) and cozy up with old friends and new for this virtual fireside chat.

Queer(ing) Sondheim is part of our evolving Summer of Sondheim series, celebrating the life and legacy of the late, great Stephen Sondheim.
