Two-time Tony nominee Kate Baldwin (Finian's Rainbow; Hello, Dolly!) will get the chance to wrap her rich tones around the Stephen Sondheim classic "Send in the Clowns" when she plays Desiree in American Theater Group’s upcoming season premiere of Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's A Little Night Music. 

Directed by Tony nominee Hunter Foster (Little Shop of Horrors), the production will run March 7-10 at the Sieminski Theater in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, followed by a March 14-24 engagement at Hamilton Stage in Rahway, New Jersey.

Baldwin will share the stage with husband Graham Rowat (Dear Evan Hanson, Sunset Boulevard) as Fredrik, American Idol finalist Alyssa Wray as Petra, Jack Dossett as Henrik, Abby Middleton as Charlotte, RJ Christian as Frid, Tara Rajan as Fredrika, and Lillie Langston as Anne. Additional casting will be announced.

“We are thrilled to present this stellar cast led by the luminous Kate Baldwin,” states ATG Producing Artistic Director Jim Vagias in a statement. “This production will represent a new interpretation of this beloved musical, and our accomplished cast will bring the lush, glorious Sondheim score to life magnificently.”

The upcoming production will also have musical direction by Keith Levenson.

Based on Ingmar Bergman's comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music—featuring a score by Sondheim and a book by Wheeler—originally opened at Broadway's Shubert Theatre February 25, 1973, with a cast that included Glynis Johns as Desiree, Len Cariou as Fredrik, and Hermione Gingold as Madame Armfeldt. The show, directed by Harold Prince, garnered six 1973 Tony Awards, including one for Best Musical. The Sondheim score features what may be the composer's best-known tune, the aforementioned "Send in the Clowns," as well as "Every Day a Little Death," "The Miller's Son," and "A Weekend in the Country."
