The musical, reportedly follows a similar structure to Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along, in which the storytelling occurs in reverse chronological order. He tells The Times that the project centers on “two people and what goes into their relationship...We’ll write for a couple of months, then have a workshop. It seemed experimental and fresh 20 years ago. I have a feeling it may not be experimental and fresh any more.” Sondheim began the project in 1991. He explains further: “I’m writing very slowly. It’s hard to get back on the bicycle... I have spent the past four years writing books [Finishing the Hat and Look, I Made a Hat], so I’m rusty."
I'm so excited for this!!!
