"Putting it Together" is a musical revue showcasing the songs of Stephen Sondheim. All of the songs are extracted from their original context and worked into a new semi-storyline that revolves around an older couple facing their disillusions and marital troubles, a younger, less jaundiced couple, and a commentator.

"Putting It Together" was first performed in England in 1992 and then moved to Broadway in 1993 for a run that starred Julie Andrews. The cast recording audio CD is from the 1993 production.

In 1999, the show returned to Broadway, starring George Hearn, Carol Burnett, John Barrowman, Ruthie Henshall and Bronson Pinchot. Hearn received a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for his role.

These excerpts are taken from a taping of a live performance of the 1999 production, available on a highly recommended DVD. The DVD is region 1 only, so can be viewed on DVD players sold in the US/Canada or PC DVD players worldwide. No audio CD was produced using this cast.

UK viewers: if you're willing to watch the DVD on your PC, it is available for purchase at amazon.co.uk (and probably other sites) and you'll avoid international shipping charges. (Please let us know if that changes.)
