With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler, A Little Night Music is a masterfully intricate exploration of musicality and character that has astounded audiences since winning the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1973. Sondheim's score, including the timeless "Send in the Clowns", has been described by The New York Times as "heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting." Set in Sweden at the turn of the century, A Little Night Music unravels the tangled web of the affairs of actress Desire Armfeldt and the men who love her. The men, as well as their jealous wives, agree to join Desiree and her family for a weekend in the country at Desiree's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, new romances and second chances usher in infinite possibilities. This dazzling production is directed and co-choreographed by Tim Howard, who appeared in the Broadway National Tours of Parade and Showboat, both directed by the late Hal Prince. This production is also co-choreographed by Tony Award nominee Elizabeth Parkinson, and music directed by Dr. Justin P. Cowan.
