Beloved senior theatre veteran Nancye Hayes will return to the Sydney stage this October in Stephen Sondheim's acclaimed romance A Little Night Music.
The witty and moving musical - which was inspired by the 1955 Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, will be at the Potts Point Theatre from October 13-November 11.
Set in Sweden in 1900, the musical tells the story of actress Desiree Armfeldt, who is caught in a love triangle with lawyer Fredrik Egerman and Count Carl-Magnus Malcom... and their wives.
After an unexpected invitation, all the characters meet for a climactic weekend in the country and suspicion and jealousy escalates.
The score contains beloved songs such as A Weekend in the Country, The Miller's Son and Send in the Clowns.
The recipient of three Lifetime Achievement Awards and three Helpmanns - Hayes will reprise her favourite role of Madame Armfeldt, taking it on for the third time in her career.
She will be joined by fellow cast members Blazey Best, Leon Ford, Melanie Bird, Jeremi Campese, Josh Robson, Erin Clare, Kiana Daniele and Pamelia Papacosta.
Director Dean Bryant described the show as a "brutally honest" comedy.
"Sondheim and Wheeler's creation is a gift to any actor, and I'm thrilled that the Hayes has assembled such a witty and passionate group to bring this story alive," he said.
One of Broadway's most revered composers and lyricists, Sondheim's catalogue includes classic shows such as Sweeney Todd, Into The Woods, Gypsy and Assassins. He also wrote the lyrics for West Side Story.
Tickets range from $79-$99.
