A Little Night Music

a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler

Middle-aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman brings his new 18-year-old bride Anne to a play starring his former mistress, Desirée Armfeldt. Before long, Desirée subtly weaves her way back into Fredrik’s life and they rekindle their romance, incurring the wrath of her current lover, the pompous and jealous Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm. To complicate matters, Carl-Magnus’ wife Charlotte warns Anne of both their husbands’ infidelities, and the two make plans to “shame Desirée back behind her wrinkles.” But Desirée has plans of her own, and before long all the mismatched couples — including Fredrik’s son Henrik (who is hopelessly in love with Anne), the Egerman’s lusty maid Petra, and Desirée’s daughter Fredrika — find themselves at the country estate of Desirée’s mother, the worldly Madame Armfeldt. As the weekend in the country unfolds, secret desires are exposed, tension runs high, and the sun won’t set until all the lovers find their true partners. Produced in cooperation with Music Theater International.
