Ben Zuk returns to the podcast to discuss a song that was supposed to end in a four letter word. Instead it has one of the best punchlines in musical theatre. Gee, Officer Krupke details the reasons why the Jets are the way that they are and it might be just as relevant today as it was when it was written. Plus, it's the only Sondheim song that appears in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

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.
