Steven Sondheim’s musical masterpiece A Little Night Music has been enchanting audiences worldwide since its Broadway debut in 1973. With playwright Hugh Wheeler, Sondheim adapted Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, into a stunningly sophisticated musical with a timeless score.
Set at the turn of the last century in Sweden, A Little Night Music interweaves a tangled web of former and current lovers. A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. Winner of four Tony Awards, A Little Night Music features Sondheim’s popular song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.”
