Quick headsup because I know we have some theatre lovers among us: the Stephen Sondheim Collection is on sale at Amazon–today only–for 63% off. That’s $44.99 instead of the usual $119.99. Who needs this? Well, it has six discs in it: Celebration at Carnegie Hall, Follies in Concert, Into the Woods, Passion, Sunday in the Park With George and Sweeney Todd in Concert.
Oh yes, certainly, it’s missing some things you wish it had. The Todd is the concert with LuPone and Hearn rather than the original recording with Lansbury, but Warner owns those rights. And shows that came later, like the reworking of Company, post-date this collection. But if you own one or two of these discs already and have been interested in the set, you still might want to consider it–because each title in here is at least $22.49 all on their own. So even if you own three of the titles already, you’re getting a deal.
As usual, this is available today only and until they run out of stock. Just thought you’d like to know. If you’re interested, you can check out more info and snag yourself a copy here.
