A Little Night Music

by Stephen Sondheim & Hugh Wheeler

August 15 – October 15, 2017



Winner of four Tony Awards®, Stephen Sondheim’s glorious musical masterpiece returns to the Signature stage in a brand new production directed by Eric Schaeffer and featuring award-winning DC actors Holly Twyford and Bobby Smith.

In 1900 Sweden, on a magical night that smiles three times, an aging actress, a married virgin, a sex-starved divinity student and a buffoonish count find themselves hilariously tangled in a web of love affairs.

Delightful, charming and at times heartbreaking, with gorgeous, lush music, including “A Weekend in the Country,” “Liaisons” and the seminal “Send in the Clowns,” A Little Night Music is a coupling (and uncoupling) tour-de-force.

“Heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.” – The New York Times

Running time approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.

A Little Night Music contains theatrical haze, cigarette smoking (tobacco), gunshots and partial nudity.
