Lauren Molina and Jason Tam, who co-star in the Keen Company production of the two-person Stephen Sondheim revue Marry Me a Little, gave Playbill Video a preview of the show before it began its run on Sept. 11 at the Clurman Theatre.



The production, set in "Hipster Brooklyn" by Keen artistic director Jonathan Silverstein, will officially open Off-Broadway Oct. 2. John Bell is musical director and accompanist.

Here, the Marry Me a Little stars talk about taking on the score by Broadway icon Sondheim and offer a preview, including a look at "Saturday Night" and "If You Can Find Me, I'm Here."

The limited engagement, which features new Sondheim songs, continues through Oct. 21.

Here's how the revue is described: "Weaving together several unknown Sondheim songs, Marry Me a Little tells the charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival of the modern single. Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, shared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams."
