February 20th, 1973: A Little Night Music
A Little Night Music opened on Broadway on February 25th, 1973.
1. Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by Hugh Wheeler
2. Glynis Johns won The Tony Award for Best Actress - you may recognize her from the film Mary Poppins.
3. There was a film, directed by Harold Prince, but it didn't do too well *wince* 😑
4. The entire score is written in waltz metre - all of the music sounds like 1 2 3, 1 2 3 (even though the time signatures vary from 3/4 to 6/8 to 9/8 etc.)
(i.e.Songs I think are EXCELLENT for performers and their Teachers 💕) *click for sheet music*
In Praise Of Women - one of my all time Sondheim favs! SO fun!
Miller's Son - a total showstopper 🤩
Glamorous Life - a monster to sing and play, but delivers in spades 😎
Send In The Clowns - a beautiful classic ❤️
