Theatre Frisco presents “A Little Night Music” July 26 – August 11. Stephen Sondheim’s hit musical is the winner of four Tony® Awards. Set in Sweden in 1900, “A Little Night Music” explores the tangled web of affairs of an actress and the men who love her. With both chaos and hilarity as the result.
The award-winning musical features a memorable score that includes the beloved classic, “Send in the Clowns.” The score is performed by a live orchestra. Neal Whitmore directs the Theatre Frisco production, and Karen Raehpour stars as Desirée Armfelt.
“I’ve been doing auditions in the DFW area for over 30 years, and every now and then, a new face pops up that makes you say wow! This was the case with Karen,” says Whitmore. “My first question to her was, ‘Why don’t I know you?’ Then I looked at her resume and saw credits from Chicago and L.A. Sometimes it seems, the right person just falls into your lap. We are fortunate that Karen has reentered the theatre scene after a hiatus. “A Little Night Music” has been a bucket list show for me to direct for several years, and this cast will help surpass all my expectations,” Whitmore said.
