As Around Cincinnati winds down its 15-year run, we want to share one of our shining moments. In 2007, local theatre writer and longtime contributor Rick Pender arranged an interview with Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim. Rick has written extensively about the composer for years, including an upcoming, in-depth biography.

Commentary: Rick Pender, Around Cincinnati contributor and executive editor/publisher of the Everything Sondheim online community, talks about the documentary Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened, about the original Broadway staging of Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along. The documentary will be shown on Sunday, January 29 at the Esquire Theatre (1pm) and Dayton's Neon Movies (7pm.)
