‘Brush Up Your Sondheim!’, London (2012)

Rupert and his Company co-star Cassidy Janson helped run an acting workshop for the Sondheim Society’s summer school titled ‘Brush Up Your Sondheim!‘.

He knew I’d be interested that it was directed by Metin Huseyin, who also directed three episodes of Merlin in 2009.
