Directed by Zoetic Stage Artistic Director Stuart Meltzer and hailed by The New York Times as “sophisticated and enchanting,” this beloved Sondheim classic explores the tangled web of affairs around actress Desirée Armfeldt, and the men who love her – a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the actress performs in Fredrik’s town, the estranged lovers’ passion rekindles, affecting everyone around them. As relevant today as when it first appeared on stage, this musical masterpiece explores class, fidelity and the human condition with humor, warmth and elegance.
