Here’s how to watch The Sondheim Legacy, a new episode of All the Moving Parts.

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.’”

The episode was taped on 08/01/2023; the first air date will be 08/25/2023 (Hero image: Vogue.)

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.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
