  • Sex, death, and a little Sondheim music

    The way director Peter DuBois sees it, the essence of Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 musical “A Little Night Music” boils down to two things: “Sex and death,” he says. “Everyone is chasing and chasing each other around, trying to put off death because they all know it is coming.”


  • 'Send in the Clowns': Sondheim's Greatest Hit

    No song better encapsulates Sondheim’s commitment to songwriting as storytelling than his greatest hit, “Send in the Clowns.” As Tony and Oliver Award-nominated performer Haydn Gwynne prepares to put her stamp on ‘Send in the Clowns’ as Desiree Armfeldt at the Huntington this fall, she has found, ‘where the song really works is in the context of the scene as a piece of emotional storytelling. I’m not going to be approaching it as a singer as much as from an acting point of view.’


  • Ah, Liaisons! The Relationships & Love Triangles of A Little Night Music

    Stephen Sondheim and the original director Harold Prince,“always wanted to do a musical that dealt with love and lovers and mismatched and foolishness.” Both the danger and the comedy of A Little Night Music stem from the same source: a knotted web of mismatched attachments. 


  • A Little Night Music Curtain Calls
