Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker Do “Sondheim! The Birthday Concert” (2010) In 2020
March 28, 2020
Bonnie Milligan (Head Over Heels, Promenade, seasons 1-4 of “Search Party”) and Natalie Walker (Alice By Heart, “BoJack Horseman,” only seasons 2 & 3 of “Search Party” but it is actually not a competition) are exhausted after putting together four entirely different shows in three and a half months. They are ready to relax. They are ready to take it easy. They are ready for a Sondheim concert.
But not just any Sondheim concert. Bonnie (who has somehow never done a Sondheim show, casting directors go directly to jail) and Natalie (who played Mrs. Lovett in Stagedoor Manor’s 2007 pilot production of Sweeney Todd: School Edition, the VHS of which He allegedly watched for three to six minutes) will be celebrating the supreme creator’s 90th birthday by taking you back to his 80th and performing “Sondheim! The Birthday Concert,” the Lonny Price-directed extravaganza preserved by PBS’ Great Performances in 2010. The concert with the Ladies in Red. The song list is set. The run order is set. Bonnie and/or Natalie shall perform every song. Could there be guests? Maybe! Might there be different musical arrangements? It’s possible! Will there be blood? [Factory whistle.]
