Song by Song by Sondheim 2018

This will be the Year of Stephen Sondheim in St. Louis, as he is honored with the prestigious 2018 Saint Louis Literary Award. To salute the master lyricist and composer, Ken Haller is thrilled to reprise his critically-acclaimed debut cabaret show:

“Song by Song by Sondheim”
Fri & Sat, April 6-7, 2018, 8:00 PM
Tickets at

Weaving songs as sentimental, witty, lacerating, sweet, and rollicking as “Not a Day Goes By,” “Everybody Says Don’t,” “Losing My Mind,” “Not While I’m Around,” “Marry Me a Little,” and his own unique take in “Send in the Clowns” into a “wonderful… funny… terrific… intimate” 65-minute narrative, Ken, accompanied by his Music Director, Marty Fox, displays the gifts that led the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to name him Best St. Louis Cabaret Performer 2015.

Critical raves for Ken Haller and “Song by Song by Sondheim”

“Haller’s show is a gem… Haller gives [Sondheim’s] songs a new, very intimate context, that lets them work in the same way they do in the original shows, [and] his sincerity and authority carry the day in this very personal creation. This is a terrific show. It’s a model of what cabaret should be!” — Gerry Kowarsky, Two on the Aisle, HEC-TV

“Ken Haller once again delights a St. Louis audience with his very special evening of songs by Stephen Sondheim. He first presented this masterfully-crafted cabaret evening some seven years ago at the Kranzberg. Since then he performed it in New York. Thoughtful, lonely, funny, loving – [This] show is well worthy of revival. – Steve Callahan,

“Saw this and it was wonderful! Grab a ticket while you can.” — Gail Pennington, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Ken Haller combines amazing warmth and intimacy, in an act that sets him far above nearly everyone else in town.” — Richard Green,

“Haller is a charming and talented performer with a voice as smooth as a brandy Alexander… A Classy Act. A Classy Guy.” — Bob Mitchell,

“Ken Haller’s cabaret show is terrific. There are some really beautiful moments. The whole show is Sondheim, and it’s such a good song list! Extremely funny but also extremely personal and warm and emotional.” — Scott Miller, Artistic Director, New Line Theatre
