Ye Olde Rose and Crown | 6th – 31st October 2015
I am very excited about this news! As you may know I love a bit of Sondheim and was very disappointed to have missed last year’s production of Into the Woods produced by All Star Productions at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Pub in Walthamstow but this October they are bringing back another of Stephen Sondheim’s classics
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
for only 22 performances!!!!
Based on Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, it is 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 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.
The Creative team will be lead by Offie Nominated Director and Musical Director Tim McArthur and Aaron Clingham.
