OPHELIA’S JUMP PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS

SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM

music and lyrics by

STEPHEN SONDHEIM

Conceived and directed on Broadway by

JAMES LAPINE

 

An intimate look at the Father of the Modern Musical, featuring new arrangements of his most beloved work.

Hailed as a “revelatory revue full of wonderful moments” and a “funny, affectionate and revealing tribute to musical theater’s greatest living composer and lyricist,” Sondheim on Sondheim is an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words… and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, audiences get an inside look at the personal life and artistic process of famed composer, Stephen Sondheim.

His story. His inspiration. His genius. The tapestry of creativity that characterizes Stephen Sondheim remained largely undiscussed, especially by the man himself, until the creation of Sondheim on Sondheim. Ranging from the beloved to the obscure, the carefully selected two-dozen songs hang from a framework of in-depth video interviews, delving into Sondheim’s personal life and artistic process.

“God!
I mean the man’s a god!
Wrote the score to Sweeney Todd
With a nod
To de Sade.
Well, he’s odd.
Well, he’s God.”

OJP Theater Opens in 2022

With new CA labor laws, we needed a bigger space where we could sell more tickets to help make ends meet.  Our expanded space will seat 99 wonderful patrons for each performance and features upgraded HVAC and ventilation.  Our original space will host Improv and classes and is available for rental.  We will also continue to produce the Midsummer Shakespeare Festival in partnership with Pomona College at the beautiful Sontag Greek Theater.
