Mean Girls Stars to Lead Concert of Stephen Sondheim's First Musical
Saturday Night will be presented by Second Stage Theatre.
Second Stage Theatre has announced casting for its Musical Mondays presentation of Stephen Sondheim and Julius and Philip Epstein's Saturday Night. The concert will take place Monday, March 11, at the Tony Kiser Theater.
The company will include Mean Girls stars Erika Henningsen and Kyle Selig, alongside Sommer Carbuccia, Matt Dallal, Kennedy Kanagawa, Jakeim Hart, Alex Mathieson, Sarah Naughton, Gabriella Pérez, Jonathan Raviv, and Nathan Salstone. Noah Brody directs, with Alexander Gemignani serving as musical director.
Written in 1953, Saturday Night was expected to be Stephen Sondheim's Broadway debut, but the first-ever New York production was delayed by 47 years due to the death of its original producer. The musical eventually had its New York premiere via Second Stage in 2000.
