Finally Angela Lansbury as Mme Armfeldt! I can't picture anyone else in that role.

Bernadette for Desiree though seems totally wrong...though I could easily see her as Countess Charlotte.

The consensus on BW.com and ATC is Bernadette won't be in it, I'm not sure where it came from.

Where is the word saying that she either will or won't be in it coming from? I havn't seen or heard any casting announcments period.

As long as Lansbury gets to play Mme Armfeldt in this, I'll be happy.

However, I'm probably the only person who thinks Desiree should be played by Barbara Walsh...I think she looks perfect for the role, and I heard great things about her performance as Desiree in regional Little Night Music.

So word is that it will definitely be Bernadette Peters and Angela Lansbury in Trevor Nunn's revival of A Little Night Music on Broadway.


THAT would be so awesome. I don't believe it.

I remember a few years ago someone claiming Lansbury would be in ALNM. It turned out to be a joke :cry:

Angela has expressed interest in playing the character, however.

It had been asked if I would consider playing Madame Armfeldt in ‘A Little Night Music’ — well, yes, I would. That would be an interesting kind of character, doesn’t have to hold the whole show.


So if the opportunity came up, hopefully she would take it! :wink:

People thought Lansbury was definitely going to be in this. Looking at recent posts now people are throwing around Stritch.

LOL. (I think they MUST be joking)

I think we should just wait for the cast list.

If rehearsals are still to start in October that should be coming soon shouldn't it? If it were really big names they'd probably announce it as early as possible.

Apparently they were supposed to announce the cast this past week, but had they still had a problem with the casting of one of the principals, so it will take a bit longer.

The New York Post is reporting that we will see Catherine Zeta-Jones as Desiree along with Angela Lansbury as Madame Armfeldt.

Here's the full article.

Later days

Zeta-Jones is too young for Desiree...thank God Lansbury is still attached to this, or else I might not be willing to see it.
