All Star Productions have announced A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC – ONLY 22 PERFORMANCES FROM OCTOBER 6TH with Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and Book by Hugh Wheeler
The Creative team behind last years Critically Acclaimed Into The Woods reunite to bring you Sondheim’s most romantic score: A Little Night Music.
Based on Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, it is 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.
The Creative team will be lead by Offie Nominated Director and Musical Director Tim McArthur and Aaron Clingham. Casting will be by Benjamin Newsome and the show is produced by Andrew Yon for All Star Productions.
