‘A Little Night’ to remember

Peters, Stritch follow Zeta-Jones, Lansbury in tuner's cast

Two Broadway legends made long-awaited returns to the stage Sunday in the official re-opening of “A Little Night Music” at the Walter Kerr Theater: Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch, taking the reins from Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury.

Stritch was quick to arrive at the Angus McIndoe after-party, and looked to exit as soon as possible, twice asking to leave before she was done charming the press. “I look forward to my night off, will you let me have that?” she implored.

Peters didn’t show up until Stritch was taking off, joining her five tables of friends and family that dominated the main floor. Despite her larger following, the two-time Tony winner was effusive in praising her co-star.

“I don’t think anyone does it the way (Elaine) does it,” Peters said.

That’s for sure.
