In 1953, Saturday Night was to mark the Broadway debut of a young, new writer named Stephen Sondheim. Owing to the death of the original producer, Saturday Night's New York opening was delayed some 47 years. 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 that he invests his friends' money in a swank apartment near the Brooklyn Bridge, even going so far as to sell the gang's precious automobile. Based on a play by two brothers who were 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.

A series of one-night only concerts of musicals produced by Second Stage Theater, MUSICAL MONDAYS will take place every Monday night through the month of March.
