If by any chance you're not familiar with Night Music, here's an extremely short precis of the delightfully complicated plot. A bunch of people in early 1900's Sweden are coupled with the wrong partners. Under a never-ending midnight sun, they flirt and banter, mate and bicker, and generally act like love-struck fools. They are sweetly human, and the trip from the beginning of Act 1 to the end of Act 2 is full of humor and emotion. Oh, and did I mention how great the singing is?
The cast includes Adam Baritot, Elyse Beyer, Mary Stewart Evans, David Fuller, Jessica Rose Futran (sleek and funny as the Countess), Chloe Holgate (a charming Anne), Stephanie Jabre, Jay Aubrey Jones, Lorinne Lampert, Richard Lisenby, Christopher J. Nolan (a very real and affecting Henrik), Becky Saunders (terrific as Madame Armfeldt), Mary Thorne, and Gianna Yanelli.
I am eternally blown away at the number of amazing performers we are have in New York City. A Little Night Music at Theater 2020 shows us yet again how blessed we are.
