A Little Night Music Now In Previews

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past month then you know that Catherine Zeta-Jones is making her Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music. Oh and don't forget five-time Tony Award winner Angela Lansbury as well. The show which first premiered on Broadway in 1973 began previews last night at the Walter Kerr Theatre on Broadway. I'll admit that I'm not the biggest Sondheim fan in the world although Company does rank up there as one of my favorite musicals of all time. Not too mention last years production of Sunday In The Park With George which completely blew me away. Maybe I'm a Sondheim fan after all.

This new revival is based on the critically acclaimed production which opened this past March at the Garrick Theatre in London. Let's be honest. Would the show be selling as well as it is without it's two main stars? Who knows? Sondheim shows while critically acclaimed have never been big money makers. The show is going to have to receive some pretty outstanding reviews to survive after it's two stars leave. We shall see. Until next time theatre fans.
