Based on the Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music premiered on Broadway in 1973, originally produced and directed by Harold Prince. It won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (for Wheeler), and Best Original Score (for Sondheim). The work was revived on Broadway in 2009 in a production starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury, and Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch later in the run.
A Little Night Music follows runs of Ain't Misbehavin' and Anna in the Tropics on the Boyd-Quinson Stage, and will be followed by the world premiere of Laura Winters' All of Me September 21–October 9.
