A Little Night Music - 1973 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Suggested by the film Smiles of a Summer Night by Ingmar Bergman

A Little Night Music features one of Stephen Sondheim's best-known songs, "Send in the Clowns."



Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's beloved musical is a warmly humorous and, at times, farcical story of romantic attachments, detachments, and mis-matchings. The New York Times calls A Little Night Music "sophisticated and enchanting."



Infused throughout with the flavor of a waltz, the musical takes place in turn-of-the-century Sweden, where the acclaimed actress Desirée Armfeldt lights up the stage and dazzles men's hearts. When both her former lover and her current paramour - and their wives - show up for a weekend at her mother's country estate, romance and passion are in the air.

After two postponements, the revival of the 2016 Châtelet production of 42nd Street is finally on till January 15th, with a brand-new cast but the same creative team as the original. Stephen Mear had already directed and choreographed the piece for the Parisian public six years ago. In the meantime opened a London revival of the first Broadway version with the original staging and choreography of the late Gower Champion, brilliantly enhanced by Randy Skinner, which took the work to another level of spectacular, so grand was the scale of the production value and money spent! That particular once-in-a lifetime and never-to-be-seen-again production was luckily preserved on video for posterity, but it doesn't take away from the qualities of this more intimate Châtelet version.
