Lovers, ex-lovers, and new love collide during a weekend in a country estate in A Little Night Music. Fredrik Egerman has restarted an affair with Desiree Arm feldt. Desiree's lover, a County, isn't exactly happy with the situation despite himself having a wife. Meanwhile, Fredrik's son has fallen in love with Ann, Fredrik's soon-to-be wife.
All parties wind up, invited or not, at a cottage owned by Desiree's mother for the weekend. Chaos and plenty of music are bound to happen.
The Centerstage cast features Colette Delaney as Desiree, Russ Dunlap as Fredrik, and Rusty Henle as Count Carl. Other cast members include Kyle Braun, Nick Duett, Peyton Evans, Emily Edwards-Fields, Barbara Katz, Lauren McCombs, Jamie Tobelman, Christy Hanley, Tymika Prince, jeff Sammons, Cory Vaughn, and Margo Woodbridge. John Leffert directed the Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler-created classic.
A Little Night Music first premiered on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre in 1973, running for more than a year with 600 performances. The musical was revived on Broadway from 2009-2011, running at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
Following A Little Night Music, Centerstage will present Curtains. That production will take place in March.
