Beloved Broadway favourites Elaine Stritch and Bernadette Peters will replace Angela Lansbury and Catherine Zeta-Jones in Stephen Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC in July (10).
Lansbury and Zeta-Jones have wowed critics with their turns as mother and daughter in the Trevor Nunn-directed stageshow, and now Stritch and Peters will take over their roles and Madame and Desiree Armfeldt.
The musical is based on Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night .
Nunn's production opened to critical acclaim in London in 2008. It transferred to Broadway last year (09) and officially opened on 13 December at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
