Before the ARTS musical A Little Night Music wraps up its run this weekend, we have a couple of interviews with the cast to share - including this one, with the handsome and talented Michael Sidoti - he’s part of the unique “Greek chorus” that brings the story to life.
Here’s our interview with Michael:
Q: Tell us about the musical A Little Night Music.
Michael: A wonderful tale involving several couples enjoying each others' company - with various levels of intimacy - resplendent with Stephen Sondheim's wonderful music and very clever lyrics by Hugh Wheeler!
Q: What part do you play?
Michael: One of the Liebeslieder, Mr. Lindquist. The Liebeslieder travel through the show as quintet, providing commentary on the action of the play. It's a fun device!
Q: What's your favorite song in the show?
Michael: "You Must Meet My Wife" is such a sweet song! It's become my favorite since being in this show.
Q: What's been the most challenging thing about the show?
Michael: Lots of words! Having to really listen to each other to make sure all those wonderful words fit together correctly - as we're moving and dancing and using props - which is part of what makes the show so much fun to do!
