From the “New York Times” – “A Little Night Music” is heady, civilised,sophisticated and enchanting. The music is an orgy of memorable waltzes and then, of course, there are breathtaking lyrics, the kind of sassy poetry that Cole Porter used to write.
Based on the film “Smiles of a Summer Night”, “A Little Night Music” tells of the middle-aged actress Desiree Armfeldt’s attempts, presided over by her formidable mother, to rid herself of one lover in order to marry another.
The show has gained an enviable roster of trophies: Best Music, Best Lyrics, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, as well as those for staging, costumes and choreography, and has been revived many times, most recently at the National Theatre in 1995 with Judi Dench and Sian Phillips as Desiree and Madame Armfeldt.
