Lauren Molina and Jason Tam will star in the Keen Company revival of the 1980 Stephen Sondheim revue Marry Me a Little at Theatre Row’s Clurman Theatre. Helmed by Keen artistic director Jonathan Silverstein, the show will begin performances September 11 and play a limited engagement through October 21. Opening night is set for October 2.
Conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman Rene and comprised of Sondheim’s lesser known songs, Marry Me a Little is the story of two single neighbors who have never met and are spending their Saturday night alone, with no idea that potential companionship is only one floor away.
The production contains material from Sondheim’s catalogue that will be heard for the first time, including “Rainbows” (originally written for the unproduced Into the Woods film and replacing "Two Fairy Tales"), “Yoo-Hoo!” (cut from Sunday in the Park With George and replacing "Pour La Sport"). Additionally, the production will feature “Ah But Underneath” (written for the London premiere of Follies), “Saturday Night,” “So Many People,” “Silly People” (cut from A Little Night Music), “Can That Boy Foxtrot!,” “Who Could Be Blue?” (cut from Follies), “Happily Ever After” (cut from Company) and more.
Molina appeared on Broadway in Rock of Ages and Sweeney Todd. Her additional theater credits include Nobody Loves You, Next Thing You Know, Ernest In Love, Ten Cents a Dance and a national tour of Sweeney Todd. Tam’s Broadway credits include Lysistrata Jones, A Chorus Line and Les Miserables. His additional theater credits include Nobody Loves You, Allegiance, The Distant Bells and The Yellow Wood.
The Marry Me a Little creative team includes choreographer Dan Knechtges, set designer Steven Kemp, costume designer Jennifer Paar and lighting designer Josh Bradford.
