Tacoma Little Theatre presents Stephen Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music,” part of its 100th anniversary season, opening March 8. This production is directed by John Munn, musically directed by Deborah Lynn Armstrong, and choreographed by Lexi Barnett.
Winner of four Tony Awards, Sondheim’s glorious musical takes place in 1900 Sweden on a magical night that smiles three times. An aging actress, a married virgin, a sex-starved divinity student and a buffoonish count find themselves hilariously tangled in a web of love affairs. Delightful, charming and at times heartbreaking, with gorgeous, lush music, including “A Weekend in the Country,” “Liaisons” and the seminal “Send in the Clowns,” “A Little Night Music” is a coupling (and uncoupling) tour-de-force.
Tacoma Little Theatre’s production features: Jonathan Bill (Fredrik Egerman), Jamey Cheek (Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm), Hayley Ewerz (Petra), Dominic Girolami (Frid), Julianna Guzman-Ferreira (Fredrika Armfeldt), Alyssa Peters (Charlotte Malcolm), Rosalie Hilburn (Madame Armfeldt), Juliet Hollifield (Anne Egerman), Will Johnson (Henrik Egerman), Casi Pruitt (Desiree Armfeldt), Audrey Stowe (Malla), Grace Wilkerson (Osa), and Erik Davis, Caryl Dowd, Kira Vega, Heidi Walworth-Horn and Chap Wolff as the Liebeslieder Singers.
