Photo Flash: First Look at Theater Latte Da's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC
Theater Latté Da presents Stephen Sondheim's romantic comedy A Little Night Music. Winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical, A Little Night Music features a book by Hugh Wheeler with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Theater Latté Da Artistic Director Peter Rothstein directs the production with Music Director Jason Hansen and choreography by Heidi Spesard-Noble. Performances begin January 23 at the Ritz Theater (345 13th Avenue NE in Minneapolis). Single tickets and season tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at latteda.org or by calling 612-339-3003.
Part comedy of manners, part battle of the sexes, this funny, elegant work inspired by Ingmar Bergman's period film Smiles on a Summer Night explores the tangled web of affairs centered around leading actress Desirée Armfeldt. Winner of multiple Tony Awards including Best Musical, A Little Night Music features a romantic score, set entirely in 3/4 time signatures, including Sondheim's most popular song "Send in the Clowns."
The production reunites two beloved Twin Cities actors, Sally Wingert (Desirée Armfeldt) and Mark Benninghofen (Frederick), who came together for Theater Latté Da's award-winning productions of Sweeney Todd and Six Degrees of Separation. Wingert most recently appeared on the Ritz Theater stage as the fastidious Librarian in Latté Da's highly-successful production of Underneath the Lintel. The duo is supported by an all-star cast including Bradley Greenwald, Elizabeth Hawkinson, Susan Hofflander, Riley McNutt, Rodolfo Nieto, Britta Ollmann, and Mabel Weismann.
