A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC
Music and Lyrics by Steven Sondheim, Book by Hugh Wheeler. Directed by James Sasser
January 27 – February 12, 2017

The legendary Stephen Sondheim created a stunning tour de force when he adapted Ingmar Bergman's comedy of manners, "Smiles of a Summer Night", into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre.

Set in 1900 Sweden, "A Little Night Music" explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée, Fredrik, Fredrick's wife, Anne, Desirée's current lover, the Count, and the Count's wife, Charlotte. Both men -- as well as their jealous wives -- agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

"A Little Night Music" is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. It features one of Sondheim's most popular songs, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."
