I Feel Pretty may be the most well known song from West Side Story. Is it a frivolous tune meant to ease the audience into Act Two, or is it empowering to see a woman sing about feeling beautiful? Tara Koett, a teacher at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School, and her two students sit down to discuss their different views.

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.
