Zeta-Jones, Lansbury set for 'Night Music'

Revival of Sondheim-Wheeler musical opens Dec. 13

NEW YORK -- There will be more than a little star power in the upcoming Broadway revival of "A Little Night Music," the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury will share top billing in the production, which begins preview performances Nov. 24 and opens Dec. 13 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

Zeta-Jones will make her Broadway debut in the production, which will be directed by Trevor Nunn. The musical also will feature Alexander Hanson, who appeared in Nunn's recent London production. It's based on the Ingmar Bergman film "Smiles of a Summer Night."

Lansbury won her fifth Tony Award in June for her performance in a revival of Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirit." Zeta-Jones won an Oscar for her portrayal of Velma Kelly in the movie version of "Chicago."
