Winner of six 1973 Tony Awards including Best Musical and The Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical.
The romantic and achingly beautiful A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC deals with the universal subject of love in all it wondrous, humorous and ironic permutations. Sophisticated, literate and stylish, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is also disarmingly warm, funny, charming and very human. Its book is one of the best ever written. The lilting, Ravel-inspired score in 3/4 time contains Sondheim’s most popular song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.” The original production opened on February 25, 1973 and played for 601 performances.
The production starred Tony Award nominees Penny Fuller and Mark Jacoby, Stephen R. Buntrock, Rachel de Benedet and Erin Davie, also starring Sheila Smith, with Laura D’Andre, Eleni Delopoulos, Eddie Egan, Katie Henney, Leah Jennings, Michael Markham, Jonathan Gabriel Michie, Christy Morton, Branch Woodman.
