TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: 42nd Street Moon Announces Cast for 2i021-22 Season Opening Production “A Little Night Music”

Oct 12, 2021
San Francisco’s 42nd Street Moon (Daniel Thomas, Executive Artistic Director and Daren A.C. Carollo, Producing Artistic Director) has announced the complete cast and creative team for the Company’s 2021-2022 season opener, the Tony Award®-winning “Best Musical” A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC. A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC features a book by Hugh Wheeler, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and is suggested by Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer Night. 42nd Street Moon’s production of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC will be directed by Brandon Jackson, with musical direction by Daniel Thomas and choreography by Allison Paraiso. A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC will perform at the Gateway Theatre (215 Jackson Street, San Francisco, CA 94111) from November 4 – 21, 2021 with an Opening Night on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 8:00 p.m.


“While other shows of Sondheim’s might be considered more grand or more groundbreaking, to me A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is the closest he has gotten to a perfect show,” said Executive Artistic Director Daniel Thomas. “It is musically dense and clever, yet features some of his greatest melodic writing and most lush accompaniments; its brilliant source material ensures that the characters and their stories remain engaging and entertaining throughout the evening; and it intertwines satire, cerebral humor, and moments of broad physicality with a quintessential romantic comedy. It is hilarious, thoughtful, and bittersweet; and most of all, it’s a celebration of many aspects of love: parents and children, husbands and wives, lovers parted and reunited. This will be my fifth time working on the show in the last twenty years, and it remains one of my very favorite pieces of musical theatre.”

The cast of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC features Alison Ewing* as "Desiree Armfeldt," Martin Bell as "Fredrick Egerman," Will Giammona as "Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm," Katrina Lauren McGraw* as "Countess Charlotte Malcolm," Samantha Cardenas* as "Anne Egerman," Shai Wolf as "Henrik Egerman," Trixie Aballa as "Petra," Cindy Goldfield* as "Madam Armfeldt," Chloe Fong as "Fredrika Armfeldt," Jack O'Reilly as "Frid," Jennifer Mitchell* as "Mrs. Nordstrom," Stephanie Rhoads* as "Mrs. Anderssen," Jacqueline DeMuro as "Mrs. Segstrom," Mark Robinson as "Mr. Erlanson" and Joshua Gonzales as "Mr. Lindquist."


In addition to Jackson, Thomas and Paraiso, the creative team for A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC will include Toni Guidry* (Stage Manager), Alexa Burn* (ASM), Ashley Garlick (Costume Designer), Mark Mendelson (Set Designer), Michael Palumbo (Lighting Designer), Daren A.C. Carollo (Props Designer) and Daniel Thomas (Sound Designer).

Tickets range from $35 - $76 and are currently available at 42ndstmoon.org/a-little-night-music.
