Foote in the Door Productions Presents: Sondheim's A Little Night Music, May 31 to June 8 at La Cite Francophone (8627 Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury)

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler

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 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.

A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. Sondheim's popular song, the haunting "Send in the Clowns," is the centrepiece of one of Sondheim's most beautiful works - it is a musical that is not to be missed!
