Sondheim gets ‘Put Together’ at WaterTower
Now that the holidays have ended, many theater companies are back on the boards, starting this week. Probably the gayest of them will be at WaterTower Theatre, where Bob Hess, Diana Sheehan and others theater all-stars join together in this production of Putting It Together, a musical tribute to the songs of Broadway legend and gay icon Stephen Sondheim. It’s in previews all weekend, but Monday is opening night … and there’s nothing like an opening night!

Addison Theatre Centre, 15650 Addison Road.

Jan. 11–Feb. 3.
