BLURB ABOUT SHOW:

Based on Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer NightA LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is set in a weekend country house in turn of the century Sweeden, bringing together surprising liaisons, long simmering passions and a taste of love’s endless possibilities.  Hailed as witty and wildly romantic, the story centers on the elegant actress Desiree Armfeldt (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and the spider’s web of sensuality, intrigue and desire that surrounds her.

The stars of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC discuss working on this landmark musical

 


“Best Theatre of 2009”

“Isn’t it bliss! 
Trevor Nunn’s new production is devastatingly good.” – Scott Brown, New York Magazine

“An erotic waltz of a show. Catherine Zeta-Jones is lustrous. 
Angela Lansbury is quite delicious.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times 

“Catherine Zeta-Jones blazes with charisma, verve and wit! 
Alexander Hanson is the sort of mature leading man we hardly ever see on Broadway. Would someone please steal his passport?” – David Cote, Time Out New York

“Catherine Zeta-Jones is inspired! 
Her ‘Send in the Clowns’ is a tour de force not to be missed.” – Thom Geier, Entertainment Weekly

“A triumphant Broadway debut by Zeta-Jones! A revelation. Alexander Hanson is superb. Stephen Sondheim’s score is magnificent and brilliant. This intimate version accentuates the emotional complexities and endlessly witty dialogue of Hugh Wheeler’s book.” – Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
