Synopsis

A hybrid — part revue and part book musical — SNAPSHOTS is billed as a “musical scrapbook”.  A married couple, Dan and Sue, who have drifted apart after their son has left for college, discover a box of photographs of their life together on the night Sue has planned to leave the marriage.  As the photographs come to life (played by four other actors who also play Dan and Sue at younger phases of their lives), the couple uncovers secrets and surprises that change their relationship.  The songs are mostly well-known ones from Schwartz’s shows, but many of the lyrics have been revised by Stephen for this new context.
