The Gallery Players | 199 14th Street | Park Slope
The Gallery Players ring in the New Year and continue their season with MARRY ME A LITTLE, opening January 26, 2017, and running through February 18, 2017, at their theater in Park Slope.
A charming and bittersweet musical revue featuring songs by Stephen Sondheim, the undisputed master of the contemporary Broadway musical. This show breathes new theatrical life and meaning into a collection of trunk songs that were culled from the final productions of Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, Company, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and A Little Night Music.
Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, unshared fantasies, never knowing that they’re just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.
A must for Sondheim aficionados, It’s a smart, funny, sophisticated and moving evening, and a fascinating look at “the songs that got away.”
