A Little Night Music
544 North Fairfax Avenue Los Angeles
A Little Night Music is a hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving musical full of moments of adoration, regret and desire. Set in 1901 Sweden, it explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress, Desiree 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 Desiree; Fredrik; Fredrick's wife, Anne; Desiree's current lover, the Count; and the Count's wife, Charlotte. Both 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, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises. Our new production offers an intimate and fresh take on this dramatic musical celebration of love and life featuring Stephen Sondheim's brilliant score, including his haunting masterpiece "Send in the Clowns."
