Three on the Aisle: Sunday in the Park With James

This week the critics speak to James Lapine about his new memoir of writing ‘Sunday in the Park With George’ with Sondheim, and talk up some shows they’ve seen.

Once a month, Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal; Elisabeth Vincentelli, contributor to The New York Times and The New Yorker; and Peter Marks of the Washington Post get together to talk about what’s going on in the American theatre.

Today, the hosts are excited to welcome Tony-winning playwright, director, and librettist James Lapine to the podcast to talk about his new book, Putting It Together, which chronicles his creation, with songwriter Stephen Sondheim, of the pathbreaking musical Sunday in the Park With George. And the critics pick some favorites, including Creede Repertory Theatre’s season, the Peterborough Players’ production of Our Town, and Signature Theatre’s digital production of Detroit 67.
