“Marry Me a Little” is a musical revue with lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim, conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman René. Called a “charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival,” the revue showcases songs cut from final productions of “Follies,” “Company,” “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” and “A Little Night Music.”

Featuring a cast of four Cornell College students, the revue-style production tells the story of singles who live in the same New York City apartment building, all fantasizing about finding love with one another. “Each song in this show surprises us with a new revelation on our hunger for human connection,” says guest director Scott Bradley. “It’s been thrilling to explore this sumptuous musical score and complex story with such talented Cornell students.”
