About Here We Are

The world premiere of Stephen Sondheim's final musical, Here We Are, is at The Shed for 15 weeks only. Get Here We Are tickets on New York Theatre Guide now.

As recently as September 2021, two months before Sondheim's death at 91, the composer revealed that he was working on a new musical called Square One with David Ives. That project has since been renamed to Here We Are, composed by Sondheim and with a book by acclaimed playwright David Ives.

They're working with material by another renowned creator: filmmaker Luis Buñuel. Here We Are is inspired by two of his films: the Oscar-winning 1972 flick The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) and 1962's The Exterminating Angel. Both are satirical, surrealist stories that center around wealthy friends' dinner party plans derailing and the secrets that come to light in the process.

Playing these esteemed guests is a who's-who of stage talent. The cast includes Tony Award winners David Hyde Pierce, Rachel Bay Jones, and Denis O'Hare; Tony nominees Tracie Bennett, Amber Gray, Bobby Cannavale, Jeremy Shamos, and Micaela Diamond, Drama Desk nominee Steven Pasquale; and more.

Who is Stephen Sondheim?

Sondheim is one of the most influential musical theatre writers of the 20th century. The nine-time Tony-winning composer/lyricist's shows include Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, Company, Follies, and the Pulitzer-winning Sunday in the Park with George. He is credited with ushering in a new era of musical theatre by daring to tackle dark, adult, and complex themes in his work.

Who is Luis Buñuel?

Buñuel was a film director and writer credited with pioneering surrealism in film. He is the recipient of an Oscar and multiple other awards, including for lifetime achievement, for the 30+ films he produced, directed, and/or wrote between 1930 and 1980. He's known for his ability to shock the audience not just for shock's sake, but to elicit an emotional response.

See the work of all these artistic greats on one stage, only at Here We Are off Broadway. Tickets to Here We Are in New York are available now.
