‘Trevor Nunn’s exquisite revival
of Stephen Sondheim’s musical’
The critically acclaimed, sell-out Menier Chocolate Factory production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s musical A Little Night Music, directed by Trevor Nunn, transfers to the Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited season.
A Little Night Music, based on Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer Night, is set in 19th Century Sweden where affairs of the heart are uppermost in everyone’s thoughts. Hailed as a witty and stylish celebration of romance the story centres on the elegant actress Desiree Armfeldt and the spider’s web of sensuality, intrigue and passion that surrounds her and features the classic “Send in the Clowns”.
The cast is led byJessie Buckley, Kaisa Hammarlund, Alexander Hanson, Maureen Lipman, Kelly Price, Alistair Robins, Gabriel Vick and Hannah Waddingham.
Since it opened in 2004, six Menier Chocolate Factory productions have transferred to the West End and New York – Fully Committed, Sunday in the Park with George, Little Shop Of Horrors. Dealer’s Choice, Maria Friedman Re-Arranged and most recently La Cage aux Folles, currently at the Playhouse Theatre.
