The following information was provided by the New Repertory Theatre:
New Repertory Theatre proudly announces Stephen Sondheim’s charming musical revue, Marry Me a Little, Jan. 7 through 27, 2013, performing in the Charles Mosesian Theater, Arsenal Center for the Arts, 321 Arsenal Street, Watertown.
“Marry Me a Little is a treasure trove of songs from Sondheim’s vault,” Artistic Director Jim Petosa said. “There are cut-outs and never-produced songs from Follies, A Little Night Music, Company, and others.”
Through bittersweet soliloquies and song, lonely New York singles fantasize romantic adventures, join in emotional conflict, and question the commitment of marriage—all the while never actually meeting.
“Through it,” Petosa said, “we look at all the possibilities of courtship through three couples: a man/woman, a woman/woman, and a man/man.”
Managing Director Harriet Sheets said, “We’re proud to present the first Sondheim-sanctioned gender-blind production of this romantic musical. Our audiences will get an updated, new take."
The Marry Me a Little cast features Aimee Doherty, Brad Daniel Peloquin, Erica Spyres, and Phil Thayer.
Tickets range from $28-58 and may be purchased by calling 617-923-8487 or by visiting www.newrep.org.
