A little ‘Night’ work for Zeta-Jones

Thesp sets the stage for B'way debut

Though it may come as a surprise to those who know her for her film work, Catherine Zeta-Jones is hardly new to the stage.

The actress, making her Broadway debut in the revival of “A Little Night Music” with Angela Lansbury and Alexander Hanson, started out in theater back home in the U.K. before she moved on to Hollywood.

At Sunday’s opening-night party at Tavern on the Green, Zeta-Jones said she was delighted when she spotted Stephen Sondheim, the show’s composer-lyricist, working on a crossword at the Walter Kerr Theater.

She also made a point of how much she enjoyed working with Brit helmer Trevor Nunn — finally. The director had turned her down a couple of times back when she was a young stage up-and-comer.

She doesn’t hold it against him, she said. “But I do remind him now and again!”
