Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dirs. James Lapine, Todd Haynes, Autumn de Wilde. 2013, 86 mins. DCP. With Stephen Sondheim, Jarvis Cocker, Audra McDonald, Darren Criss, Jeremy Jordan, Laura Osnes, America Ferrera. In this delightfully creative compendium of musical numbers across Sondheim’s career, a trio of directors tackle highlights from six different shows (West Side Story, Merrily We Roll Along, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park with George, and Company) in unexpected ways. In his segment, Haynes constructs a sultry and innovative update of Follies’ classic torch song “I’m Still Here,” giving the paean to divadom a queer twist by casting Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker as its cabaret warbler.
