Why See A Little Night Music?
Kicking off the 2017/18 season with a flourish!
Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's charming Tony-winning Broadway musical is given a true D.C spin, with local theater stars Holly Twyford and Bobby Smith taking on the lead roles of Desiree Armfeldt and Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, respectfully. Kicking off the Signature Theatre's 2017/18 season, this lush new production of the 2011 hit show is helmed by Eric Schaeffer and provides a heartwarming portrait of love's entanglements, as well as the iconic standard, "Send In The Clowns."
Based on Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music is set in a weekend country house in 1900 Sweden, bringing together surprising liaisons, long-simmering passions and a taste of loveís endless possibilities. Hailed as a witty and stylish celebration of romance , the story centers on the elegant actress Desiree Armfeldt and the spiderís web of sensuality, intrigue and passion that surrounds her.
The 2011 production on Broadway saw Bernadette Peters take on the celebrated role of Desiree, with a performance that was critically acclaimed across the board. The previous year, British actress Catherine Zeta-Jones took home the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress In A Musical.
