A Little Night Music
May 31 - June 8
Foote in the Door Productions is proud to close their 5th season with A Little Night Music, based on Ingmar Bergman’s Smiles of a Summer Night and winner of four Tony Awards.
Sondheim creates a stunning tour de force when he takes Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, and turns it into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre.
Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centred 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.
Tickets are $26 for Adults, and $22 for Students/Seniors, plus applicable fees. Wednesday, June 5 is a 2-for-1 performance.
