In 1983, the Whitney Museum sponsored a Composers' Showcase Series, which included ''A Stephen Sondheim Evening.'' Sondheim was asked to help select the songs, and the two-night-only event was recorded by RCA/Victor. The revue featured an all-Caucasian cast of Broadway pros, and they did include selections from ''Pacific Overtures.'' So George Hearn and Bob Gunton sang ''Poems,'' and Steven Jacob, Cris Groenendaal, Hearn and Gunton did ''Someone in a Tree.'' The evening also included three songs from ''Saturday Night'': the title tune, ''Isn't It?'' and ''What More Do I Need?'' Angela Lansbury sang ''Send in the Clowns,'' accompanied by Sondheim, and the night closed with the entire cast singing ''Old Friends.''
