Based on the Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music premiered on Broadway in 1973, originally produced and directed by Harold Prince. It won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (for Wheeler), and Best Original Score (for Sondheim). The work was revived on Broadway in 2009 in a production starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury, and Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch later in the run.
Boyd will lead a creative team that also includes choreographer Robert La Fosse and music director Darren R. Cohen, with additional members to be announced.
The Massachusetts theatre's upcoming season also includes Ain't Misbehavin' June 16–July 9, Anna in the Tropics July 16–30, and the world premiere of Laura Winters' All of Me September 21–October 9.
