Firehouse features cabaret seating for July 27 performance

'Sing a Song of Sondheim' is tribute to the songs of Stephen Sondheim

The Firehouse Arts Center Theater will transform itself from traditional row-style seating into a cabaret/club setting Sunday, July 27, for "Sing a Song of Sondheim," a tribute to the songs of the iconic American musical theater composer Stephen Sondheim.

G. Scott Lacy heads the cast of some of San Francisco's finest singers from Society Cabaret's original production, as they bring this rich songbook to life.

Stephen Sondheim is described by Frank Rich of the New York Times as "now the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in the American musical theater." He is the winner of an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards, eight Grammy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and the Laurence Olivier Award.

The cabaret setting will be on the main floor only. Balcony seats will remain theater-style seating.

General admission tickets are $27 for main floor (table) seating, and $22 balcony.

Tickets can be purchased online at up to two hours prior to the performance, by phone at (925) 931-4848, or in person at the Firehouse Arts Center Box Office, 4444 Railroad Ave.

Box Office hours are Wednesday-Friday, noon-6 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and for two hours prior to the performance. The entrance to free parking is on Spring Street near First Street.
