Peters, Stritch play more ‘Night Music’

Stars will appear in the musical through holidays

Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch will stick with “A Little Night Music” through Broadway’s big-selling holiday season, appearing in the show until it shutters Jan. 9.

The duo, who stepped into the revival over the summer replacing Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury, were originally skedded to remain through Nov. 7.

The star power of Zeta-Jones and Lansbury helped push receipts for “Night Music” into hit-tuner territory, with the musical regularly pulling in weekly sales in the $900,000 range. Those numbers dropped steeply when Peters and Stritch stepped in, but rave reviews for the pair helped rejuvenate sales to some degree. In recent weeks, sales have hovered above $600,000, with attendance often 90% or higher.

New sked ensures that Peters and Stritch will be around for the Thanksgiving frame and the Christmas-New Years weeks, among the most profitable of the year for Broadway.
