Putting It Together tells the two-year story of creating the iconic Broadway musical Sunday in the Park with George. According to BroadwayWorld, the book will include Lapine's recollections, conversations between Lapine, Sondheim, and the original cast and crew of the production, personal photographs, sketches, script notes, and sheet music from the making of the show. Putting It Together is a deep dive into the making of Sunday in the Park with George and the story of how a Broadway icon went off-Broadway with a neophyte nineteen years his junior to create a Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning smash hit.
