From CUNY TV:
On November 26, 2021, Stephen Sondheim passed away, and since then, Everything’s Coming Up Sondheim! Major revivals include Company, Into the Woods, Merrily We Roll Along, Sweeney Todd and now, Here We Are, a posthumous world premiere at NYC’s The Shed.
It seems there’s no better time than right now for host Patrick Pacheco to chat with London critic David Benedict, Juan A. Ramírez, Chief Critic of Theatrely, Ruthie Fierberg, Executive Editor of Broadway News, blogger Matt Koplik of Broadway Breakdown and Elizabeth Wollman, Professor of Music at CUNY’s Baruch College.
The Sondheim Legacy premieres on Friday, August 25 at 8:30 PM on CUNY TV, on YouTube, and on-demand on the CUNY TV website.
The Sondheim Legacy is a segment of CUNY TV’s acclaimed series, All the Moving Parts, and will include excerpts from several of Sondheim’s shows and lively, informative commentaries that are insightful, clever, and often moving. Some of the most powerful moments come when Sondheim speaks—in video clips—of his passions, insecurities, and challenges.
Broadway World notes, “His titanic legacy recalls the story of Georges Seurat’s masterpiece, Sunday in the Park with George which ends with: ‘White. A blank page or canvas. His favorite. So many possibilities.’”

In All the Moving Parts, host Patrick Pacheco looks beyond the spotlight at the passionate and unheralded creative talents that are critical to the theatrical experience. From costume designers to dramaturges and everything in between, Patrick looks at all the moving parts of a Broadway production.
