Princeton Summer Theater Presents "A Little Night Music"
Princeton Summer Theater is excited to present a compelling new production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s stunning musical, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC (June 21-24; June 28-July 1). Based on Ingmar Bergman’s classic film Smiles of A Summer Night, the play is a sweet, sardonic ode to the foolish abandon of romance that all ages will enjoy.
For Madame Armfeldt’s guests, love can never come too soon—or too late. There are lovers hidden in every corner of Madame Armfeldt’s country manse: Desirée, the actress; Desirée’s former beau, Fredrik, and his new young wife, Anne; Desirée’s current lover, Carl-Magnus, and his wife, Charlotte; and still others, it seems, making a racket in the stables. Lovers are swapped, lives intersect, and as the night smiles on the young, the old, and the foolish, everything somehow falls beautifully into place.
Starring Princeton Summer Theater Company members Maeve Brady (Charlotte), Andrew Massey (Carl-Magnus), Miyuki Miyagi (Anne), and Evan Thompson (Fredrik); and Princeton University undergraduates Sarah Anne Sillers (Desirée) and Mark Watter (Henrik). Directed by McCarter Theater’s Associate Producer Adam Immerwahr, and Music Directed by Princeton University graduate Kevin Laskey.
