In the 1970s, composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and director-producer Harold Prince made some of the most inventive and challenging musical theatre that Broadway had ever seen. Two of those shows — A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street — return to Australian stages this month. Also on the program, we're joined by New York Times theatre reporter Michael Paulson for all the latest news ahead of the 73rd Tony Awards, and MTC are touring a production of Finegan Kruckemeyer's The Violent Outburst That Drew Me to You for young people in regional Victoria and Tasmania — so what is the impact of seeing professional theatre for the first time?
