We thought it would be fun to share a few stories from each of our Sondheim fanatics in the cast of our upcoming Cabaret @ the Circle, February 16 at The Play Circle at the Memorial Union.
Dan Jajewski is excited to be joining FST for this evening of Sondheim, having most recently appeared in FALSETTOS with StageQ.
Favorite Sondheim show? INTO THE WOODS
Favorite Sondheim song? “Finishing the Hat” from SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE
Favorite Sondheim role I’ve played? Soldier in SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE
Sondheim role I want to do? Baker in INTO THE WOODS
Sondheim role I want to do but probably won’t be cast as? Georges in SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE because I’m not old enough yet
Best Sondheim experience? Both Sondheim show shows that I was part of: ASSASSINS (with Four Seasons Theatre) and SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE (with Middleton Players Theatre)
Worst Sondheim experience? I completely forgot a line in a performance of SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE during “Putting It Together.” Instead of moving on, I held the scene hostage trying to think of the right words, which never came. Instead, what felt like an hour and half later I said the immortal word—“preposition!” —which had no relevance whatsoever. I will never live it down…
Favorite Sondheim lyric? “Little gurgles.” (From “So Happy,” INTO THE WOODS)
