About the Play Shortly after West Side Story had opened in 1957, Harold Prince and Stephen Sondheim first came up with the notion of collaborating on a musical with a score made up entirely of waltzes. But unable to find a suitable property, they put the notion aside to work on other projects. After their prizewinning Follies had opened in 1971, they resumed their search for a basis for their “waltz” musical. They asked Hugh Wheeler to aid them in their search, but it was Sondheim who recalled Ingmar Berman’s 1956 film, Smiles of a Summer Night, one of the film maker’s few comedies. The three men screened the film and immediately knew they had found the right property. Mr. Bergman was approached and sold them the rights when he was assured that the producer did not intend “a rigid adaptation” of his film, but rather a musical freely suggested by it. Thus, A Little Night Music was born, “a stylist celebration of romantic love, set in the enchanted birch groves of Sweden at the turn of the century.” Sondheim composed all the songs for Night Music in three-quarter time or multiples of that meter; this served as the play’s concept and tied it together. Subtexts were injected into almost every song – most notably in “Every Day a Little Death,” which allows a countess to express her feelings of loneliness as a philanderer’s wife. In addition, Sondheim devoted himself to the “inner monologue song,” which is a song, a Time critic explained, “in which characters sing of their deepest thoughts, but almost never to each other.” Though Night Music addresses the standard musical-comedy subject, love – it “is a masquelike affair, tailor-made to fit Sondheim’s flair for depicting confused people experiencing ambivalent thoughts and feelings,” the Time reviewer assessed. A Little Night Music burst upon the Broadway scene with a magic that was enthusiastically acclaimed by audiences and critics. Clive Barnes of the New York Times rapturously exclaimed: “Good God! – an adult musical! Heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting…Hugh Wheeler’s book is uncommonly urbane and witty… The jokes are funny, and the very real sophistication has considerable surface depth… Then, of course, there are Stephen Sondheim’s breathtaking lyrics” and his “music is a celebration of threequarter time, an orgy of plaintively memorable waltzes, all talking of past loves and lost worlds.” Opening of February 25, 1973, the show ran for 601 performances and won a parcel of awards, notably, the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best musical, six Tony Awards (including one for best musical), and three Drama Desk Awards. ­— from Great Musicals of the American Theatre


About the Creators Stephen Sondheim (Music and Lyrics) One of the most influential and accomplished composer/lyricists in Broadway history, Sondheim was born in New York City. As a teenager he met Oscar Hammerstein II, who became his mentor. Sondheim graduated from Williams College, where he received the Hutchinson Prize for Music Composition. He worked for a short time as a writer for the television show Topper; his first professional musical theatre job was as the songwriter for the unproduced musical Saturday Night. He wrote the lyrics for West Side Story, Gypsy and Do I Hear A Waltz?, as well as additional lyrics for Candide. Musicals for which he has written both music and lyrics include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Company (1971 Tony Award Music and Best Lyrics), Follies (1972 Tony Award Score & New York Drama Critics Circle Award; revised in London, 1987), A Little Night Music (1973 Tony Award Score), The Frogs, Pacific Overtures (1976 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award), Sweeney Todd (1979 Tony Award Score), Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park with George (1984 - New York Drama Critics Circle Award; 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama), Into the Woods (1987 Tony Award Score), Assassins and Passion (1994 Tony Award Score). He composed the songs for the television production Evening Primrose, co-authored the film The Last of Sheila and provided incidental music for The Girls of Summer, Invitation to a March and Twigs. Side by Side by Sondheim, Marry Me a Little, You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow, Putting It Together, Moving One and Sondhiem on Sondheim are anthologies of his work. He has written scores for the films Stavisky and Reds, and composed songs for the film Dick Tracy (Academy Award for Best Song). He is on the Council of the Dramatist Guild and in 1983 was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters which awarded him the Gold Medal for Music in 2006. In 1990 he was appointed the first Visiting Professor of Contemporary Theatre at Oxford University. He received a Kennedy Center Honor in 1993. Hugh Wheeler (Book) was a novelist, playwright and screen writer. He wrote more than thirty mystery novels under the pseudonyms Q. Patrick and Patrick Quentin, and four of his novels were transformed into films: Black Widow, Man in the Net, The Green-Eyed Monster and The Man with Two Wives. For films he wrote the screenplays for Travels with My Aunt, Something for Everyone, A Little Night Music and Nijinsky. His plays include Big Fish, Little Fish (1961), Look: We’ve Come Through (1961), and We Have Always Lived in the Castle (1966, adapted from the Shirley Jackson novel). He co-authored with Joseph Stein the book for a new production of the 1919 musical Irene (1973), wrote the books for A Little Night Music (1973), a new production of Candide (1973), Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1979, based on a version of the play by Christopher Bond), and Meet Me in St. Louis (adapted from the 1949 M-G-M musical). Additionally, he contributed additional material for the musical Pacific Overtures (1976) and wrote a new adaptation of the Kurt Weill opera Silverlake, which was directed by Harold Prince at the New York City Opera. He received Tony and Drama Desk Awards for A Little Night Music, Candide, and Sweeney Todd. Prior to his death in 1987, Mr. Wheeler was working on two new musicals, Bodo and Fu Manchu, and a new adaptation of The Merry Widow.
