Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by George Furth
Based on the original play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart

Sondheim’s musical adaptation of the unheralded Kaufman and Hart play transforms the story of three successful people looking back on their lost friendship. Winner of London’s 2001 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, this heartfelt show poses the question “How did we get from here to there?” and strives to answer it for three friends reflecting on years of aspiration and reality, relationships both sweet and sour, and dreams fulfilled and unfulfilled.
