Laurence Guittard, a Tony nominee for his Carl-Magnus in the original 1973 production of “A Little Night Music,” will play Fredrik in the Royal National Theater’s upcoming revival of the Stephen Sondheim/Hugh Wheeler show, slated to open Sept. 26 in the Olivier. The last of the principals to be cast, Guittard joins a heady lineup of women including Judi Dench, Patricia Hodge, Sian Phillips and “Carousel’s” wondrous Julie Jordan, Joanna Riding.

Guittard replaces previously announced Ian McKellen, who had to bow out of both “Night Music” and the current Richard Eyre-directed “La Grande Magia” due to filming commitments on “Richard III.” The Sondheim revival marks the musical debut of “Les Parents Terribles” (OK, “Indiscretions”) team Sean Mathias (director) and Stephen Brimson Lewis (designer).

Guittard, incidentally, won’t be the only Broadway musical veteran knocking about London this fall: Howard McGillin will be across the Thames leading the cast of Jerry Herman’s “Mack and Mabel,” opening Nov.7 at the Piccadilly.
