I hope you got to see it -- it was absolutely wonderful, even if one hasn’t seen the original it’s spoofing. Though if you have seen it (and if one knows Sondheim’s reputation for being obsessively meticulous), it’s a total joy, full of tiny, throwaway moments that are gems, down to the wardrobe for the character who’s supposed to be like Elaine Stritch.
The good news is that if you missed it, I believe it will be available On Demand starting tomorrow, March 1, in the IFC section listed under Season 3. But if not (or if you don’t want to wait until then or until it is eventually available On Demand), you can watch it online by signing into the IFC website using your cable company username and password by clicking on this link here.
The show was co-written by standup John Mulaney, who I like a lot (and who plays the Sondheim-ish character) and Seth Meyers, and they both did the song lyrics, as well.
If you haven't seen the original documentary, I embedded it here a few years ago, though it's no longer available online. However, you can get it on Netflix. It’s great to see for itself, but most especially in conjunction with this. This is the Netflix link)
And here's a fun clip from near the opening of the show. That's Taran Killam of Saturday Nigh Live as the music director who is producing the album.
