Emily Skinner, Sierra Boggess, More Cast in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC
One of the hottest summer tickets in New England is bound to be A Little Night Music at Barrington Stage Company now that the cast has been revealed. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s musical will star Tony nominees Emily Skinner as Desiree Armfeldt and Mary Beth Peil as Madame Armfeldt, along with Jason Danieley as Fredrick Egerman and Sierra Boggess as Countess Charlotte Malcolm.
Rounding out the cast are Cooper Grodin as Count Carl Magnus, Sabina Collazo as Anne Egerman, Noah Wolfe as Henrik Egerman, Sophie Mings as Petra, Kate Day Magocsi as Fredrika, Adam Richardson as Mr. Lindquist, Rebecca Pitcher as Mrs. Nordstrom, Stephanie Bacastow as Mrs. Anderssen, Andrew Maughan as Mr. Erlanson, Leslie Jackson as Mrs. Segstrom, and Slater Ashenhurst as Frid.
The show will run August 6-28 on the Boyd-Quinson Stage. Directed by BSC Founder and Artistic Director Julianna Boyd (in her final season at the Massachusetts theatre company), A Little Night Music is choreographed by Robert La Fosse and musically directed by Darren R. Cohen. The trio previously collaborated on BSC’s 2018 production of West Side Story.
Originally produced and directed on Broadway by Harold Prince, A Little Night Music won six 1973 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book of a Musical, and Original Score. Suggested by the film Smiles of a Summer Night by Ingmar Bergman, the show is written in variations of three-quarter time and features one of Sondheim’s most revered songs: “Send in the Clowns.”
The Boyd-Quinson Stage season will also include the Ain’t Misbehavin’, The Fats Waller Musical Show (June 16-July 9), choreographed and directed by BSC Associate Artist Jeffrey L. Page; Nilo Cruz’s 2003 Pulitzer Prize–winning play, Anna in the Tropics (July 16-30), directed by Elena Araoz; and the world premiere of Laura Winters’ new play, All of Me (September 21-October 9), directed by Ashley Brooke Monroe.
At the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center, the St. Germain Stage season will include the world premiere of Andy Warhol in Iran (June 2-25) by Brent Askari, directed by Skip Greer; ABCD (July 1-23), a world premiere play by May Treuhaft-Ali and directed by Daniel J. Bryant; The Youth Theatre’s world premiere staging of the new musical The Supadupa Kid (July 29-August 13), based on Ty Allan Jackson’s popular children’s book series, with a book and lyrics by Sukari Jones, music by Joel Waggoner, and direction by NJ Agwuna; and a revival of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot (August 19-September 4), directed by Joe Calarco.
