Menier’s ‘Music’ looks to Broadway

London production tunes up for transfer

London’s Menier Chocolate Factory production of tuner “A Little Night Music” looks to be gearing up for a Broadway run, with Equity auditions posted for a fall transfer of the staging helmed by Trevor Nunn.

Tentative timeline sees the production beginning rehearsal in October ahead of a December opening. According to the audition announcement, show is produced by David Babani for Chocolate Factory Prods., Andrew Fell and the Frankel Viertel Baruch Routh Group.

The Menier Chocolate Factory’s production of the 1973 tuner by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler repped the first time Nunn had directed a tuner by Sondheim. The revival received largely positive reviews from the London press when it opened in London late last year.

Blighty incarnation starred Hannah Waddingham as the aging actress central to the romantic entanglements of the story, set in 19th century Sweden. No casting for the Stateside version has been announced.

Menier Chocolate Factory, of which Babani is a.d., previously originated the production of Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park with George” that went on to play Broadway last season.

“Night Music” has been on the Rialto revival radar for a while, thanks in part to the Chocolate Factory staging as well as to a recent concert perf presented by the Roundabout Theater Company, starring Vanessa Redgrave and the late Natasha Richardson.

Meanwhile, New York’s Off Broadway longrunner “Forbibben Broadway” has announced a summer run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, where the show plays June 25-Sept.13.
