ABOUT A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC

The Huntington Theatre Company opened its 2015-2016 season with the Tony Award-winning musical A Little Night Music, Stephen Sondheim’s most romantic and popular work. Performances run through October 11, 2015 at the Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre.

A Little Night Music features a gorgeous, sweeping score infused with humor, warmth, and the flavor of a waltz, including Sondheim’s best known song “Send in the Clowns.” The musical includes a book by Hugh Wheeler, orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, and is suggested by the film Smiles of a Summer Night by Ingmar Bergman. Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois (Smart People) directs, with music direction by Jonathan Mastro (Come Back, Little Sheba and Our Town at the Huntington), and choreography by Daniel Pelzig (Candide at the Huntington). The production is conducted by Eric Stern.

In this romantic comedy, lovers reunite, passions reignite, and new romances blossom around famous actress Desiree Armfeldt and an unforgettable cast of characters during an eventful weekend in the country. The award-winning score exudes some of Sondheim’s most stunning melodies. Written almost entirely in waltz time (¾), the music echoes the love triangles on stage and includes songs such as “Weekend in the Country,” “The Miller’s Son,” and “You Must Meet My Wife.” The Boston Globe says A Little Night Music has “wit, style, clarity, and top-flight performances!” WGBH says, “Gorgeous! Extremely funny! A really fantastic show!”
