Everything Sondheim’s third — and final — magazine is now at the printer. We are told it will be mailed on Sept. 1, 2017. Current subscriber in the United States should receive their copy by mid-September; it might take a bit longer to reach international subscribers. We will continue posting fresh content on th website until Dec. 31, 2017. In fact, a new feature — an interview/profile of Australian musical theater star David Campbell — has just been uploaded. Check it out!
This and other web-based articles will continue to be available in 2018 and beyond. And it’s possible that the website will have a new manager by that time. Several offers are under consideration. Check back for updates and keep an eye out for email notices if one of these opportunities becomes more solid.
New subscriptions are no longer being accepted. Individuals who subscribed for one year will have had their order fulfilled — they were promised two print issues (three will have been sent) plus yearlong access to this website’s premium content. In December we intend to refund $20 to anyone who subscribed for a second year. (If you don’t want a refund, please email me at rpender@EverythingSondheim.org.)
After two years of launching and promoting Everything Sondheim, we have decided that our project is not sustainable in the form we envisioned. Our ability to promote the website and publication has been impeded by a limited budget. Many of our writers and editors have worked as unpaid volunteers since early 2016. We’re striving to close up shop as gracefully as possible
All of us who have labored to establish Everything Sondheim (and who edited and produced The Sondheim Review before that) are mourning this decision. We, like all who subscribed and visited this site, are great admirers of Stephen Sondheim, and we regret that this platform cannot continue as we had hoped.
