The 13th annual Master Playwright Festival takes on composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim. Sondheim Fest 2013 features a dozen-plus productions of Sondheim’s musicals and original work by Winnipeg artists inspired by the composer and lyricist. This is a great opportunity to thoroughly immerse yourself in the work of a playwright who may not have a regular home on Winnipeg stages. The festival runs from January 16 to February 2.
