Commentaires : This critically acclaimed production earned special praise for the Lady Bracknell type performance from Maureen Lipman, but above all for Hannah Waddingham’s outstanding portrayal. The role of Desirée had earlier been played by older actresses with the consequent ageing of all the other characters around her. The original Desirée should have been no more than 40, with a 14 year old daughter – and this was ideal casting for Hannah Waddingham and added new depth to the story. Including previews, the London production gave some 226 performances.

Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "On transfer to the West End, A Little Night Music leaves me far less than enraptured."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Delicious evening of refined enchantment."
SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "While at its finest Nunn’s production has needle-sharp poignancy, the comedy that accompanies the pain is sometimes too broad...It’s not a rendering that never puts a foot wrong; but when it’s in step with Sondheim’s masterly music it’s sheer elegance."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "I found myself almost continually entranced...It's a fine production of a musical that only misses greatness by a whisker."
