A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by Stuart Meltzer
This beloved Sondheim musical explores the tangled web of affairs involving actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who desire her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm. When the actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles, affecting everyone around them. As fresh today as when it first appeared onstage, this musical masterpiece explores class, fidelity and the human condition with humor, warmth and elegance.
Inspired by the Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, the musical first appeared on Broadway in 1973, starring Glynis Johns and Len Cariou. It went on to win six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical, and has since played in theaters around the world.
Hailed by The New York Times as "sophisticated and enchanting," this classic musical includes some of Sondheim's most lush and beautiful music including "The Miller's Son," "A Weekend in the Country" and the chart-topping "Send in the Clowns."
Zoetic Stage continues its relationship with the work of Stephen Sondheim after mounting four critically acclaimed productions of his work. Assassins, Passion, Sunday in the Park With George and Sweeney Todd played to sold-out audiences and collectively garnered 29 Carbonell Award nominations, winning a total of seven awards, including Best Musical for Sunday in the Park With George and Assassins.
