From the press release: “Desiree is involved with the buffoonish Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, husband of the cynical and wryly comedic Countess Charlotte Malcolm. But when Desiree spots her old flame Fredrik in the audience of her most recent production, her interest in him is immediately rekindled. Fredrik, however, has recently married the virginal 18-year old Anne, with whom Fredrik’s son, the melancholy academic Henrik, has fallen in love. All parties meet for a “Weekend in the Country” at Desiree’s mother, Madame Armfeldt’s, estate, where the tangled web of romantic involvements continues to surprise us with its twists and turns. Featuring the classic, Grammy Award-winning song “Send in the Clowns” and a beautiful, lush score, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is a story of love, nostalgia, regret, and the magic of music on a summer’s night.”
A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC runs May 26th – July 8th. For more information visit bohotheatre.com.
