A Little Night Music by Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by Hugh Wheeler

A musical adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's 1955 comedy “Smiles of a Summer Night,” this was originally done on Broadway back in the 1970's. Frederick Egermann, a middle-aged lawyer, has taken a very young (18 years old) new wife Anne, but they haven't yet consummated their marrriage. Egermann's son Henrik, is a morose divinity student who has a santimonious exterior but longs to break free. He also has a longing for Anne, even while clumsily trying to seduce the family maid, Petra. Egermann and Anne go to a play starring the legendary actress Desiree Armfeldt, with whom Frederick had an affair years ago. Full of sexual frustration, Egermann visits Desiree in private, but winds up locking horns with Deisree's latest paramour, the insanely jealous (and also married) Count Carl-Mangus Malcom. After a visit with her old mother Mme. Armfeldt(a famous courtesan in her day)at the latter's estate where she also sees her young daughter Frederika, Desiree decides that Frederick is the man she wants and devises a weekend visit for the Egermann's. Carl-Mangus gets wind of the visit and he and his witty, viperish wife Charlotte crash the party. It all ends up with various characters changing partners and finding some hope for happiness, even if it's just short term. Petra even finds herself cavorting with Mme. Armfeldt's butler Frid. This musical is the source of the well-known song “Send In The Clowns.”
