SNS: Elaine Stritch sings The Little Things You Do Together

Sunday Night Sondheim: “The Little Things You Do Together

In the recording studio with Stephen Sondheim, recording the cast album for “Company”.  In the recording you’ll see a much younger Sondheim.  One question for Sondheim fans, who is the guy that gives instructions before the recording begins? Is this the book writer of Company?

Elaine Stritch sings "The Little Things You Do Together" from the original production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company in 1970.

 

A few YouTube comments of note:

1. i love how elaine just commands the room and listens to the other actors as well.

2. Elaine is just being Elaine. She always has to be the center of attention, even now she still doubts her own talents, I would guess. Only proves no one ever gets to be the person they always wanted to be, even when everyone says they’re the best.

       2a. bold statement, do you know Elaine personally i wonder?

       2b. Well said.

3. I don’t think I would be that upset if 70’s styles came back in fashion.

4. Is that Barbara Barrie in the sunglasses?? She’s great!

5. If you look closely you will see Beth Howland singing who played Vera on Alice
