Stephen Sondheim is one of the greats of musical theatre - legendary for the sharp wit of his lyrics and his darkly distinctive scores for musicals including Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods and Company. We celebrate his 85th birthday with a musical trawl through the very best of Sondheim's back catalogue. Formerly the piano-playing half of cabaret duo Kit and the Widow, Richard Sisson joins Kitty Whately, Siân Phillips and Jamie Parker to bring a touch of Broadway to Cadogan Hall.

[This Prom will be repeated on Sunday 23rd August at 1pm].
