09 Jan 2014
The 2009 revival of A Little Night Music, which features a Tony Award-winning score by Stephen Sondheim, closed on Broadway Jan. 9, 2011. Hunter Ryan Herdlicka offered Playbill.com readers an exclusive look at his two-performance day at the theatre, from morning wake-up to final curtain.
Armed with a digital camera, Herdlicka offers a look at an average two-performance day portraying the conflicted Henrik Egerman. He snapped everything from morning routine to pre-performance rituals to between-show activities to the final curtain call.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
