Director John Doyle’s productions of Stephen Sondheim’s musicals broke new theatrical ground by completely reimagining Sweeney Todd, Pacific Overtures, Assassins, and more. Doyle’s technique of actor-musicianship and his minimalist aesthetic, combined with his deeply human and astute dramaturgy, revived and revivified Sondheim’s shows in profound ways. Doyle’s work changed how artists, audiences, critics, and scholars understand Sondheim’s musicals.

Please join us for a conversation with Professor John Doyle about his work on Sondheim’s musicals, moderated by Stacy Wolf, Professor of Theater and American Studies and Director of Princeton’s Program in Music Theater.
