Layan Elwazani is currently a standby for The Band's Visit, which is playing right now at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City. Layan has an extensive knowledge about Stephen Sondheim and has even had the chance to be in a couple of productions of West Side Story. She brings with her an actor's outlook that is fascinating to hear, especially when it comes to the characters of Maria and Anita. It's a good thing this week features a song which is really a confrontation between them.

What is Putting It Together?
This is a podcast about Stephen Sondheim's entire body of work show by show and song by song. Each week Kyle Marshall invites an expert to discuss a Sondheim song in-depth. Together they discover the humour, how the songs inform character, and any hidden meanings. Most importantly they try to understand the man behind the music, the Shakespeare of our time, as best they can.
