This spring, Clear Space is diving head-first into one of the most musically intricate creations of America’s greatest musical theatre composer. A tangled web of lust and love, new and rekindled, some legitimate and most illicit, is at the center of this beautiful waltz. Aging starlet Desiree Armfeldt, already engaged in an affair with the married Count Carl-Magnus, is brought face-to-face with an old flame, Fredrik Egerman, who in turn is recently married to the young and innocent Anne, with whom Fredrik’s son, Henrik, is madly in love. A weekend in the country at Desiree’s mother’s residence brings all of the gossip and tension to a head, as the summer night smiles three times: on the young, the fools, and the old. Lavish music and romantic comedy blend beautifully in this stunning musical – Clear Space’s first venture into the work of Stephen Sondheim!
