Saturday Night

Saturday Night
A status obsessed Brooklynite ultimately learns the incredible value of love in this little know Sondheim gem.

In 1953, Saturday Night was to mark the Broadway debut of a young, new writer, Stephen Sondheim. Owing to the death of the original producer, Saturday Night's New York opening was delayed some 47 years! But now it's here, brimming with all the charm and youthful vitality of a talent blossoming into greatness.

Saturday Night tells the unassuming story of a group of Brooklyn boys trying to make good in the stock market in 1929. Unfortunately, one of them, Gene, is so eager to climb the social ladder and impress his sweetheart, he invests his friends' money in a swank apartment near the Brooklyn Bridge, even going as far as to sell the gang's precious automobile!

Based on a play by two brothers responsible for the classic film Casablanca, Saturday Night features a fetching, tuneful Broadway-style score that hints at Sondheim's triumphs to come while staying firmly rooted in the Rodgers and Hammerstein tradition. Saturday Night is a nostalgic charmer that will appeal to every audience and is a must for Sondheim fans.
