An indelible moment in the history of musical theater.
The New York Times
Based on Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is set in a weekend country house in turn of the century Sweden, bringing together surprising liaisons, long simmering passions and a taste of love's endless possibilities. Hailed as witty and wildly romantic, the story centres on the elegant actress Desirée Armfeldt and the spider's web of sensuality, intrigue and desire surrounding her.
It doesn't get better than this! The stuff of theater legend!
Tony, Grammy & Golden Globe Award winner Bernadette Peters and Tony & Emmy Award winner Elaine Stritch return to Broadway in Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s Tony Award-winning masterpiece A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, directed by Tony Award-winner Trevor Nunn.
One for the books!
