A Little Night Music

BROOKLYN, NY – As they continue their 47th Season, the Gallery Players’ first production of the New Year will be Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s elegantly sophisticated romantic comedy A Little Night Music. Based on the Ingmar Bergman film “Smiles on a Summer Night,” the five-time Tony winning musical features an elaborate score of waltzes, including the Grammy-winning “Send in the Clowns.” Night Music features the most iconic traits of Sondheim’s repertoire, boasting a complex score riddled with hilarious wit. A delicate dream of a musical, the sentimental comedy follows a trio of mismatched lovers as they twist, turn, and tumble toward their true love. While the material is sure to impress, make no mistake that the lavish costumes and luxurious set will invite Gallery’s audiences for a taste of “The Glamorous Life.” Leading the cast in the role of Desiree Armfeldt is Rita Rehn*, whose Broadway credits include Tony winners Nine and A Chorus Line. Judith Roberts* (B’way: Present Laughter rev.) will appear as Desiree’s mother, Madame Armfeldt. Desiree’s lovers will include Rob Langeder* (Buddy US Tour) as Count Carl-Magnus Malcom, and Richard Rowan* (Suessical Nat’l Tour) as Frederik Egerman. The production, directed by Tom Rowan and music directed by Max Grossman, will be given life by Choreographer Elyse Daye Hart, Set Designer Chris Minard, Costume Designer Heather Carey, Lighting Designer Andrew Lu, Sound Designer Jacob Subotnick, Properties Designer Sara Slagle, and Production Stage Manager Robert Mills. The cast includes Kiley Caughey, Faylotte Joy Crayton, Maximus DeFrancesco, John Alden Hooper, Samantha Jeffreys, Barrie Kreinik*, Melanie Long, Morgan Patton, Josh Powell*, Kate Semmens, Emily Stokes, Robbie Torres, Scott Vicari, and Brooke L. Williams. A Little Night Music is an Equity Approved Showcase. * Actors appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association. A Little Night Music runs January 25th through February 16th.
