Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music is a witty, urbane romance set to waltz time. The action takes place over a weekend at a country house in early 20th-century Sweden. Middle-aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman has been married to his teenage trophy wife for nearly a year, but she's tenaciously holding onto her virginity. His eyes begin to wander to the other guests and he finds himself searching for true meaning and fulfillment in a relationship. Sophisticated, literate and stylish, A Little Night Music explores the complexities of love and heartache with warmth and humor, and is most famous for the ballad "Send in the Clowns." Randy Reyes leads a talented cast of your favorite Mu performers, including Sheena Janson (Little Shop of Horrors), in this Sondheim classic directed by Rick Shiomi (Into the Woods). Learn More

This was my first visit to the Cowles Center. It's very nice. The 4 different dance pieces in the Fall Rep were all very different from each other. The variety was amazing. The classical ballet was beautiful. The modern dance piece was unique, curious, charming and funny. The Gregory Hines tribute piece was very....Gregory Hines.

My wife has been trying to get me to go to Ballet for years. This was a great way to get an opportunity to please her and not overdo for myself.
The performances were great, the variety was welcome and the interpretive portions interesting.
