The Gateway Theatre
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Director: Tom Ross
Music Director: Daniel Thomas
“Heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.” – The New York Times
A romantic farce par excellence. Based on the Ingmar Bergman film “Smiles of a Summer Night,” couples meet, part, and reunite during a glorious “Weekend in the Country” – all under the watchful eyes of the wry family matriarch and a harmonizing Greek chorus. The beautiful Sondheim score contains his biggest hit, “Send in the Clowns.”
Part of 42nd Street Moon’s SONDHEIM SWEEP.
In what may be the most ambitious venture in our history, 42nd Street Moon is committed to being the first theatre company ever to produce every single professional stage show by legendary composter, Stephen Sondheim. The Sondheim Sweep aims to present works, both lauded and obscure, either in production or in concert, during every season. We look forward to honoring the regning master of the musical form for many years to come!

Opening Night date for A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC: Saturday, Feb 11th, 2021
Get all your burning questions answered about the show you’ve just seen during our fun and informative post-performance discussions with the audience, cast, and crew. Hosted by Executive Directors Daren A.C. Carollo and Daniel Thomas, who will share the history of the original production as well as our current incarnation! Learn more about the composers, lyricists, and book writers, as well as your favorite Moonie cast members. Discussion Sundays happen on the first and second Sunday of each show in our regular season offerings.
Family & Student Matinees
The best deal in town for kids, parents, and students of all ages. Young people under 18 and college students with a valid student ID can see the show for just $10! Younger students receive a family activity guide, get to participate in an intermission contest (with prizes!), and can join in on a post-show discussion and visit with the actors that includes autographs and pictures. This is a great way to introduce the next generation to the heritage of American musical theatre. This is also a great idea for a kid’s birthday party. Please contact Education Director Anne Norland for further details or if you have a large group wishing to attend.
42nd Street Moon created the Family Matinee to make musical theatre affordable and accessible for young people along with their parents and to provide families the opportunity to experience classic Broadway. Relevant, fun activities and fascinating discussion guides enable families to rediscover how theatre has served an important function in our nation’s cultural landscape and been a way for families to come together. We have expanded the matinee to be a Family and Student Matinee, so that college-aged students can also take advantage of the generous discount.
