Sondheim! The Birthday Concert was screened at the NYIT Auditorium for an audience of press and performers. The film transferred beautifully to the wide screen. The audience was so enraptured that they clapped for the performances just as though they were at the actual concert. Sondheim! The Birthday Concert will premiere on November 24, 2010 as part of PBS's Great Performances.
