Craig Jessup "Sondheim Tonight!"
One of the Bay Area’s best entertainers celebrates the work of one of our greatest composers. Craig Jessup’s Sondheim Tonight! brings together more than a dozen Sondheim gems from some of his earliest shows as a composer/lyricist (Saturday Night, Anyone Can Whistle) to some of his most beloved (Company, Follies, Merrily We Roll Along).
With musical director/accompanist Ken Muir, Jessup pays tribute to a true master. “Sondheim has meant so much to me personally,” Jessup says. A veteran of cabaret and musical theater stages around the world, Jessup was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as a performer who can be “playful or twangy, or edgy and electric. His singing also has a narrative quality that betrays his musical theater background. Each lyric springs from a deep and distinct emotion; each bit of phrasing is carefully sculpted to communicate an idea with clarity and dynamism.” In other words, Craig Jessup is the ideal interpreter of a Sondheim song.
