A Little Night Music
by Austin Playhouse
May. 27 - Jun. 26, 2016
Set in turn of the century Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around famed and fading actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her. When these men — as well as their wives — agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country, lovers reunite, simmering passions ignite, and new romances blossom. This witty and enchanting Tony-award-winning musical features a beautiful, lush score by beloved composer Stephen Sondheim and writer Hugh Wheeler.
The cast of A Little Night Music includes Austin Playhouse company members Brian Coughlin as Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, Mary Cox as Madame Armfeldt, Boni Hester as Desiree Armfeldt, Huck Huckaby as Fredrik Egerman and Molly Karrasch as Petra with Connor Barr as Henrik Egerman, Sarah Becker as Anne Egerman, Sebe Shearer as Fredrika Armfeldt, Joseph Urick as Frid, Lara Wright as Countess Charlotte Malcolm, and Natalie Cummings, Devin Medley, Hal Roberts, Jerreme Rodriguez and Sarah Walker as the Quintet.
The play is directed by Don Toner with musical direction by Lyn Koenning, choreography by Danny Herman and Rocker Verastique, set design by Mike Toner, costume design by Buffy Manners, lighting design by Don Day, and sound design by Joel Mercado-See.
