A Little Night Music Opens Friday

Iowa City - City Circle Acting Company of Coralville will present Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical, A Little Night Music, Feb. 25-27 at the Englert Theatre.

A Little Night Music is directed by Patrick Du Laney with musical direction by Jason Sifford. Based on Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music is a sophisticated and sly musical romp that features familiar tunes such as “Send in the Clowns.”

Krista Neumann, who has worked professionally in Minneapolis, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, portrays glamorous actress Desiree. Ms. Neumann starred in South Pacific with Giorgio Tozzi and John Raitt, and has had TV roles in Who’s The Boss and Silver Spoons. Josh Sazon, familiar to local audiences from his recent turn as Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady, will play Fredrik, Desiree’s former lover, who has a new young bride. Complications and seductions ensue, making for an enchanting evening of theatre. The production also features a stellar cast of local performers and musicians.

Performances of A Little Night Music will be held at the Englert Theatre, Feb. 25-26 at 7:30 pm and Feb. 27 at 2 pm. Tickets are available through the Englert Theatre Box Office, www.englert.org, (319) 688-2653.
