Specially created for television, Evening Primrose aired only once on ABC Stage 67. Starring Anthony Perkins and Charmian Carr, the production featured a teleplay adapted by James Goldman (from a short story by John Collier) and a score that included some of Stephen Sondheim’s most hauntingly beautiful songs – among them “I Remember” and “Take Me to the World.”
This long-lost treasure is now available for the first time ever – impeccably restored and re-mastered from a newly discovered, pristine kinescope print.

This is a tremendous opportunity to see a little-known Sondheim artifact. The quality of the black & white video is good, but definitely watchable, as is the sound. Read morePublished 24 days ago by John Eustace
Lovely early Sondheim score. The story would creak if it were any longer but works nicely at this length.Published 2 months ago by Charles K. Alexander II

It's like a musical episode from The Twilight Zone! The cast is great and the songs, by Stephen Sondheim, are fabulous. The whole video is just under an hour long. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Shanghaifanny
I love Sondheim so wanted to see this out of curiosity. Also I was interested in seeing Perkins in a singing role. It is a dated piece.Published 11 months ago by Mary Sanders
A fantasy, semi-horror story. Beautiful songs and who knew (or remembered) that Tony Perkins could sing.
A twist ending that hits hard.
Fortunately this little gem of a classic has been preserved for us to appreciate and admire. Tony Perkins' singing is surprisingly effective as is that of his co-star. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Norman A. Kelley
