    A Weekend in the Country With Eros and Thanatos

    BEN BRANTLEY

    December 14, 2009: The night itself is said to smile at the escapades of the addled lovers in “A Little Night Music,” Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s erotic waltz of a show from 1973. But the expression that hovers over Trevor Nunn’s revival, which opened Sunday night at the Walter Kerr Theater, feels dangerously close to a smirk.

    Desirée, Making Her Entrance Again

    Charles Isherwood

    August 2, 2010: The pleasures of love recollected and the possibilities of love anticipated are contemplated in “A Little Night Music,” the musical by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler currently in revival on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theater. The satisfactions of love in the present? That’s a more complicated matter in this melancholy romantic comedy.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF A Little Night Music

    January 26, 2010: The first Broadway revival of "A Little Night Music," the enchanting, moonstruck musical based on the Ingmar Bergman film "Smiles of a Summer Night," is a curious affair. There are some lovely moments, most of them supplied by Angela Lansbury, but too much of this adult, sophisticated show, which opened Sunday at the Walter Kerr Theatre, seems forced, boisterous and a little crude.

  • USA TODAY REVIEW OF A Little Night Music

    December 13, 2009: It has been enough of a gift having Angela Lansbury back on Broadway in recent seasons. But it's particular cause for celebration that she is appearing, for the first time in more than 25 years, in a musical. And not just any musical — a work by Stephen Sondheim, with whom she has already made magic more than once.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF A Little Night Music

    January 26, 2010: The most atypical of Ingmar Bergman's celebrated films, "Smiles of a Summer Night" brought ripe carnality and a delicious sense of irony to its fin-de-siecle gathering of romantically muddled Swedes. Those same intoxicating elements were translated to "A Little Night Music," Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's exquisite waltz-musical inspired by the film. Reviving the 1973 show, director Trevor Nunn brings a blunt, heavy hand where a glissando touch is required, but the wit and sophistication of the material are sufficient to withstand even this phlegmatic staging. A handful of magnetic leads provides further insurance against the uneven production.

  • BACKSTAGE REVIEW OF A Little Night Music

    January 24, 2010: Eddie Carbone, the tragic longshoreman of Arthur Miller's "A View From the Bridge," has become one of those roles actors long to play, like Hamlet, Blanche DuBois, and Miller's own Willy Loman. Eddie's unspoken incestuous longings combined with the fierce defense of what he considers his honor affords numerous opportunities to express repressed passions. When they are unleashed, the stage can potentially erupt with an elemental force.
