One of Stephen Sondheim's most beloved and award-winning musicals, A Little Night Music offers an amusing and farcical tale of unexpected liaisons, relentless desire, and ill-fated heartbreak in the life of acclaimed actress, Desiree Armfeldt. One eventful weekend, Desiree, her former beau and his wife, and Desiree's current lover and his wife all arrive at a Swedish country estate. Long-held passions are soon rekindled in this classic waltz of a musical directed by Ethan Heard who also directed BTG's 2013 hit murder mystery, The Cat and The Canary. Featuring one of Sondheim's most notable show tunes, "Send in the Clowns," A Little Night Music celebrates love and all the foolhardy particulars it entails.
Tickets may be purchased in person at the Colonial Ticket Office at 111 South Street, Pittsfield or by calling (413) 997-4444 or online at www.BerkshireTheatreGroup.org. All plays, schedules, casting and prices are subject to change.
