BWW Student Blog: Jessica Vanek - A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC at the Las Vegas Little Theatre Is Anything But Little
by Guest Blogger: Jessica Vanek - Jan 23, 2017

Jess here.  I recently had the incredible opportunity to attend a production of A Little Night Music at the Las Vegas Little Theatre, a well-established theatre company here in town.  As Sondheim is my favorite composer, this was immensely pleasing to see.  The story is set in 1900's Sweden, and follows the lives of Fredrik Egerman and his young wife, Anne.  Their inner turmoil when dealing with all things romantic is apparent from the outset, with 'Soon/Later/Now' sung by Anne, Fredrik, and Fredrik's son, Henrik, clearly defining the show's underlying premise of frustration, longing and infidelity.  When actress Desiree Armfeldt, Fredrik's former lover, happens by their town on tour, an opportunity to rekindle the romance comes into play, however foiled by the unexpected arrival of Desiree's married lover, Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm.  Subsequently, the development of several unbeknownst love triangles and pairings surface in Act II, as the group members all rendezvous at the country estate of Desiree's mother, Madame Armfeldt, for a climactic 'Weekend in the Country.'

BWW Review: WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE Delights Audiences at Winter Park Playhouse
by Kelli McGurk - Jan 23, 2017

'Why Do Fools Fall in Love?' takes us back to the year 1966 to our protagonist, Millie's impromptu bachelorette party thrown by her friends Sally, Florence, and Dee Dee (who tags along, but is quickly adopted into the friend group).  The evening kicks off with alcohol, gossip, alcohol, junk food, and oh, did I mention? More alcohol.  Trouble begins to arise in paradise when Sally reveals that she sent Millie an anonymous note with some troubling news regarding her fiance.  Hilarity, arguing, and lots and lots of singing ensues, and we are left with a strong impression of the 'sisters before misters' mantra.  That is, guys will come and go, but best friends last forever.   (more...)
