Sondheim plans changes to Bounce
From the Chicago Sun Times: ‘In a pre-show conversation Friday night at the Ravinia Festival, Stephen Sondheim said he was hard at work on making changes to his new musical, "Bounce," which debuted this summer at the Goodman Theater. He and book writer John Weidman are set to finish work on those changes--including "the compression of several scenes, the addition of at least one and a half new songs and the clarification of the opening sequence so audiences understand the show better"--within the next couple of weeks. The show will then go back into 3-1/2 weeks of rehearsal before opening at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Asked what he was considering for his next project, Sondheim mentioned a musical version of the 1993 film "Groundhog Day." He may have been joking.’
