NEW MILFORD, CONN. (August 9, 2008) – This fall, TheatreWorks New Milford proudly presents the stunning Tony Award-Winning musical, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, with Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and Book by Hugh Wheeler.
A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is a deeply romantic and achingly beautiful tale of love that unfolds in turn-of-the-century Sweden.
