I Know Things Now: My Life in Sondheim’s Words

New Album Release on June 17th, 2022

MAC and Bistro Award-winning artist Jeff Harnar heard in the songs of Stephen Sondheim the story of his own life. That story was adapted into an acclaimed one-man show, and has now been expanded and preserved on disc in I Know Things Now: My Life in Sondheim’s Words, a dazzling tapestry of over 25 songs – from familiar anthems like “Being Alive” and “Losing My Mind” to rarities like Dick Tracy’s “Live Alone and Like It” and “More.” Harnar weaves these songs into an original narrative, reimagining them for an LGBTQ+ audience, while renowned jazz artist Jon Weber – serving as conductor and orchestrator – recasts them in a jazz idiom, unleashing an orchestra of 20 in a radical reinvention of Sondheim’s harmonies, one that the composer himself – upon seeing the show onstage – not only endorsed but encouraged. Now, PS Classics – Stephen Sondheim’s label of choice for his final two decades – offers another jewel in its Sondheim crown: a highly original and personal celebration of the artist’s work, by one of its foremost interpreters.
