If you get to the theater 45 minutes in advance you may be able to snag a reserved parking spot right next to the theater. Spaces are limited. Come early, park and enjoy a meal in Old Town.

Description

There never has been a weekend in the country quite like this, as loves are lost, found, yearned for and sent packing to the tune of some of the most breathtaking songs ever written, including the classic “Send in the Clowns.” Sophisticated and stylish, this musical based on Ingmar Bergman’s “Smiles of a Summer Night” abounds with wit as romantic liaisons are played out beneath the mysterious night lights of Sweden at the turn of the century.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Book by Hugh Wheeler

Directed by Sean Murray

Stephen Sondheim has won an Academy Award, seven Tony Awards (more than any other composer), multiple Grammy Awards and a Pulitzer Prize. His most famous works include_ A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Company, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd_ and Sunday in the Park with George.

Hugh Wheeler, playwright, librettist, poet and translator, won Tony Awards for his books for the musicals A Little Night Music, Candide and Sweeney Todd. He also wrote the books for many other musicals including the stage version of Meet Me in St. Louis.
