Sondheim’s career began as a lyricist and continued as composer and lyricist for a number of musicals, including “Into the Woods.” In this course we will explore how his work has changed the face of musical theatre.

Initially Connie Meng was an actress both On- and Off-Broadway. She also appeared in numerous TV commercials. She then took a break to get an MA in Theatre from the University of Michigan. Next she worked on a Ph.D. at the University of Denver, where she also taught acting and directed and choreographed. Her next move was back to New York City to work as a professional musical director and conductor. On Broadway she played in the pit for “Into the Woods,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” and “Damn Yankees.” Connie moved back to Canton, her home town, in 1998. Since 2000 Connie has been the theatre critic for North Country Public Radio.
