Composed of songs from master of the modern musical Stephen Sondheim's vast catalog, Marry Me a Little is set in the separate apartments of two lonely New Yorkers who fantasize about romance while living only a floor away from each other. Through bittersweet soliloquies and songs from both famous musicals and unproduced shows, the revue tells of the characters' hopes, adventurous longings and fears of commitment. The poignant romantic story includes a slew of songs originally written for such Sondheim gems as Follies, A Little Night Music and Company. Learn More

A compelling production of an EXCELLENT script. The cast was solid, though the central character of Brooke was miscast with an actress rather too young for the role (the actor playing her younger brother comes across as older) - there is no way she was even born in the 70's, let alone an adolescent back then. Nevertheless, she did a credible job in a thankless role - that of a head-strong (and relentlessly unpleasant) daughter returning home to drop a bomb-shell on her family. The rest of the cast were all terrific in their more nuanced portrayals of characters with multiple dimensions. Definitely worth the trip (and the set is one of the most gorgeous creations I've seen on-stage in some time).
This show contains adult language.
Post-show discussions take place on Wednesdays during the regular run.
