Pinafore,” “Avenue Q” and more, May 2 at 8 p.m. The recital is a collaboration between students of SU’s music and drama programs.
The first half of the program will be a showcase performance by freshmen in the musical theater practicum, featuring songs from Romberg, Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, Finn and Guettel. The second half of the program, “Selections from Sweeney Todd in Concert,” will feature a 22-piece orchestra performing Sondheim favorites including “The Worst Pies in London,” “My Friends” and “Pretty Women.”
