HBO is currently putting together its forthcoming documentary on Steve Sondheim’s work. Entitled Six By Sondheim, the programme is directed by James Lapine and features performances by Audra McDonald, Darren Criss, Jeremy Jordan, America Ferrera, Jarvis Cocker and Stephen Sondheim.

The film details Sondheim’s experiences writing six songs: “Opening Doors,” “Something’s Coming,” “Send in the Clowns,” “Being Alive,” “I’m Still Here” and “Sunday.” The documentary will feature archival footage and interviews from Sondheim’s personal collection, and will be told primarily by the songwriter himself.

The show will be broadcast in the USA on December 9th 2013.
