Stage and screen star Kathleen Turner has joined the cast of Ogunquit Playhouse's upcoming production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's A Little Night Music. The Oscar and Tony nominee will star as Madame Armfeldt, with performances running July 18-August 17 at the Maine theatre.

Broadway favorite Hunter Foster is directing the new production, with further casting and creative team to be announced.

Adapted from the Ingmar Bergman-directed and written film Smiles of a Summer NightA Little Night Music features a book by Wheeler and a score by Sondheim. The story follows three sets of seemingly mismatched lovers, each feeling restless in their current relationship.

Sondheim’s Tony-winning score is probably best known for “Send in the Clowns,” which became an unlikely radio hit after the show premiered on Broadway in 1973. The score also includes “Every Day a Little Death,” “A Weekend in the Country,” and “The Miller’s Son.”

Turner was Tony-nominated for her 1990 performance in Cat On a Hot Tin Roof and again for her 2005 work in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Her Broadway credits also include IndiscretionsThe Graduate, and High.

Ogunquit's A Little Night Music is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International.

Tickets are available at OgunquitPlayhouse.org.
