After an entire season talking about the lyrics of West Side Story, we now turn our attention to the film version. I invited on Shane Lawrence to discuss the artistry of the movie and why it still remains such a cultural touchpoint almost 60 years later.
If you can help out by taking this survey, I'd be very grateful! - https://goo.gl/forms/GRshXdnJASev6w3f2

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.
