Set in New York, the story follows the lives of a successful but disillusioned composer and his two estranged friends in reverse chronology, with the clock ticking backwards from 1976 to 1957.

A brilliantly melodic score coupled with Sondheim’s sharp and piquant observations of human frailty makes for a witty and poignant story about the importance of staying true to one’s hopes and aspirations.

Tickets: £20 (£10 concessions) available from Barbican Box Office

On general sale from 8 April 2019. Priority booking for Guildhall Circle members from 1 April 2019.
