The unexpected snowstorm that hit the East Coast has left Stephen Sondheim stranded and unable to fly, so he will miss Saturday’s performance of ‘Stephen Sondheim: In Conversation’ at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa.

The Sondheim event will be rescheduled at a date to be established. But the show will go on, in a fashion; singers Brian Stokes Mitchell and Christine Ebersole, who are in Southern California, will perform a vocal program with musical accompaniment, beginning at 8 p.m.


Ticketholders to the Sondheim event, which was organized around an on-stage Q&A with the Broadway playwright, accompanied by Stokes-Mitchell and Ebersole singing selections from his songbook, will be admitted to Saturday’s performance, and their tickets will be honored for the rescheduled Sondheim event at a future date.
