Shelley Rivers and Markus Sodergren will be starring in Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me a Little

It will be directed by Robert McWhir, the artistic director of the Stage Door Theatre, who is no stranger to Sondheim musicals having produced and directed both Follies and Into the Woods at his former home, the Landor Theatre, in North Clapham.

Creative team includes Director Robert McWhir Musical Director Aaron Clingham Designer David Shields Lighting Designer Richard Lambert Two urban singles share a Saturday night of sweet fantasies and deep yearning while never leaving the confines of their solitary apartments. Together they breathe new theatrical life and meaning into a collection of trunk songs that were mostly culled from the final productions of Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, Company, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and A Little Night Music. This production will feature the more modern song list of the 2012 Keen Company production – but be prepared for a couple of surprises!”
