ABSTRACT
This article reports that Stephen Sondheim's, an artist, 75th birthday is over, but celebrations continue at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park during 2005-06, starting with "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." But that's only a warm-up for the season's anticipated blockbuster: a reworking of Sondheim's 1970 hit "Company," directed by John Doyle, the Britisher who will turn heads on Broadway this fall with his scaled-down "Sweeney Todd." It is also informed that the Cincinnati Playhouse and Actors Theatre of Louisville will co-produce "Love, Janis," Randal Myler's portrait of boozy rock singer Janis Joplin.
