Big Talent for A Little Night
Before the last notes of music had left the air, the relatively small audience at Wednesday night's premiere of A Little Night Music spilled forth with thunderous applause and screams of encouragement that filled the Center for the Arts' Black Box Theatre to the bursting point. UB's department of theater and dance has once again outdone itself, performing a rendition of A Little Night Music that would make Stephen Sondheim proud. First premiering on Broadway in 1973, A Little Night Music is a story of love and frustration in turn-of-the-century Sweden.
