Maria Friedman sings ‘Lenny & Steve’ with Jason Carr (Musical Director)
Three-time Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman and her two-time Tony nominee musical director Jason Carr explore the songs of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim in their critically acclaimed show, comparing and contrasting songs from their separate catalogues, as well as their joint masterpiece West Side Story. Songs include New York, New York, I Can Cook Too, Losing My Mind and Send In The Clowns.
“...the songs impact on each other in interesting and amazing ways. But then there aren’t too many Maria Friedmans or Jason Carrs around ... they teased and cajoled, amused and moved, and most of all “told stories” that ... made us listen to even the most familiar numbers with renewed interest” – Edward Seckerson.
