Stephen Sondheim created a stunning tour de force with A Little Night Music, based on Ingmar Berman’s vivacious 1955 film, Smiles of a Summer Night. Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée, Fredrik, Fredrick's wife, Anne, Desirée's current lover, the Count, and the Count's wife, Charlotte. Both men -- as well as their jealous wives -- agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.  A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire.  To quote the New Yorker, “A Little Night Music comes close to being the perfect romantic musical comedy.” Directed by Summer Lyric’s Artistic Director, B. Michael Howard and choreographed by Diane Lala, this Sondheim masterpiece, littered with infectious waltz melodies including “You Must Meet My Wife,” “A Weekend in the Country,” and the heart wrenching, world-renowned ballad, “Send in the Clowns”, will have you weeping and cheering for more!
