Because he quite obviously ought to have his own thread.

Copied from the HERE WE ARE thread, from about a month ago:

Headline notwithstanding, Reidel's article (below) actually makes no pretense of having anything to say about HWA per se; at the time of the interview, Tunick was constrained by a company-wide NDA from discussing the show.  But it's nevertheless lovely to hear from him, as one seldom does:

Putting It Together:
How do you complete a Stephen Sondheim musical without Stephen Sondheim?
Call for Jonathan Tunick.





PlaybillInside Orchestrator Jonathan Tunick's Project to Make Sondheim's Scores Sound Bigger
                             A re-orchestrated version of A Little Night Music will premiere at Lincoln Center.  Tunick says Sweeney Todd is next.

I do hope they record this.  I'd love to see it, and there are plenty of tickets still available at the moment, but they start at $148 for the nosebleeds and go up to $338 for almost anything on the orchestra or first-mezzanine levels.  I'll keep an eye on the prices, though, just in case they prove dynamic enough to swerve toward more-affordability.
