Musical revenue features career-spanning classics from Sondheim’s unequaled canon 

[SALT LAKE CITY, UT, FEBRUARY 13, 2023] — Pioneer Theatre Company (PTC), Utah’s premier professional theatre, presents the musical revue Putting It Together March 3 through 18. Celebrating the storied career of Stephen Sondheim—one which lasted over fifty years with productions on Broadway, the West End, and around the world—Putting It Together is the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Originally conceived by Stephen Sondheim and collaborator Julia McKenzie. Putting It Together allows audiences to experience classic Sondheim themes: love, heartbreak, hope, reluctant brides, chauvinistic husbands, art, and so much more. The production also boasts musical highlights from Into the WoodsSunday in the Park with GeorgeA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the ForumCompanyMerrily We Roll AlongA Little Night MusicFolliesSweeney Todd, as well some of Sondheim’s more obscure material including The Frogs.


Pioneer Theatre Company welcomes a cast with extensive Broadway and regional theatre credits to Putting It Together. Tyrick Wiltez Jones was last seen at PTC in Ain’t Misbehavin’ and appeared on Broadway in Hairspray and Finian’s Rainbow. Also returning to PTC is Judy McLane, a Broadway vet whose long list of credits includes Aspects of LoveKiss of the SpiderwomanChess, and (over 4,000 performances in) Mamma Mia!. PTC audiences will remember McLane as Diana in Next to Normal. 

Making their respective PTC debuts are Cayleigh CapaldiNicholas Rodriguez, and Brent Thiessen. Capaldi has been featured on Law and Order: Organized Crime on NBC and Mrs. Fletcher on HBO, in addition to many musical theatre credits. Rodriguez most recently completed a run in the Broadway revival of Sondheim’s Company opposite Patti LuPone. Prior to that, Rodriguez toured the country as Captain Von Trapp in the Jack O’Brien-directed revival of The Sound of Music. Thiessen was most recently seen as Prince Topher in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella at the Walnut Street Theatre and previously toured in Tootsie and Pretty Woman.

Putting It Together will be helmed by Director/Choreographer Gerry McIntyre, a PTC alum who directed and choreographed Ain’t Misbehavin’. Prior to being an in-demand director/choreographer, McIntryre appeared on Broadway in the original cast of Once on This IslandAnything Goes (with Patti LuPone); as well as the Broadway, touring, and film productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (with Donny Osmond).
