Running June 6-19, Night Music marks the first Sondheim work to be produced at OTSL. Mizrahi will not only stage the production, but also render set and costume designs. Stephen Lord will conduct with choreography by Seán Curran. Michael Chybowski is lighting designer.

Though the roles of Desiree and Madame Armfeldt remain to be cast, initial casting includes Christopher Herbert (Henrik Egerman), Amanda Squitieri (Anne Egerman), Lee Gregory (Carl-Magnus Malcolm), Erin Holland (Charlotte Malcolm), Candra Savage (Petra), Aaron Agulay (Mr. Lindquist), Lauren Jelencovich (Mrs. Nordstrom), Corinne Winterst (Mrs. Anderssen) and Mark Van Arsdale (Mr. Erlanson).

Based on Ingmar Bergman's "Smiles of a Summer Night," the waltz-kissed musical centers on the romantic trysts of fading stage actress Desiree Armfeldt over the course of a weekend in the country.

The 1973 Tony-winning musical is currently playing its first Broadway revival with Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones as Desiree and Tony-winning stage veteran Angela Lansbury as Madame Armfeldt.
