"The Royal Family" Concludes And "A Little Night Music" Opens

The Royal Family Broadway Show

The Royal Family, the classic George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber comedy about a family of stage stars, concludes its limited run at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre today.

The production, which was extended twice due to ticket demand, featured a glittery cast of theater regulars including Jan Maxwell, John Glover, Tony Roberts, Ana Gasteyer, Reg Rogers, and Rosemary Harris.

New Recording Of The Musical

Meanwhile, over at the Walter Kerr Theatre, the Trevor Nunn-directed production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's charming A Little Night Music is having its official opening.

This is the first-ever Broadway revival of the 1973 musical based on Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night, and it stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as a glamorous actress and Angela Lansbury as her mother. It was recently announced that PS Classics and Nonesuch will be releasing a new recording of the musical with this production's cast.
