The production began performances May 9 under the direction of Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and will continue through June 14 at the Thompson Shelterhouse Theatre.
Wilfert (Make Me a Song) and Eakeley (Sweeney Todd) head the production, which asks, "'What do you do when you find yourself alone on a Saturday night in New York City?' The story follows two young people who live in the same apartment building (he in 3E and she in 2E), but have never met. Both characters (who go unnamed throughout the show) would prefer to be doing something exciting with their weekend night, but instead are left unpacking groceries and reading the early edition of the Sunday New York Times to pass the time."
The 1980 revue features such Sondheim rarities and trunk songs as "Two Fairy Tales," "So Many People," "The Girls of Summer," "All Things Bright and Beautiful," "Your Eyes Are Blue," "Happily Ever After," "It Wasn't Meant to Happen" and "A Moment with You."
Lynne Shankel musical directs Marry Me a Little, which has designs by Beowulf Boritt (set), Aaron Spivey (lighting) and Gordon DeVinney (costume).
