Judi Dench in Sondheim on Sondheim next year?

Dame Judi Dench was doing a platform in the Lyttelton Theatre at the National last night talking to John Miller about her new book And Furthermore.

During conversation she mentioned that she will be involved with Sondheim on Sondheim when it comes to London next year.  Saying “I’ll be there”. She said there will be a permanent cast but with a male and female guest appearing for four weeks at a time.

Sondheim on Sondheim was conceived by James Lapine and is a haphazard anthology show which blends live performance of Sondheim songs with archival video footage and taped interviews with Sondheim. It has a cast of 8 and presumably Dench would take the role played by Barbara Cook on Broadway.
