A Little Night Music

Thu, Oct 12 - Sat, Oct 21

6500 Gilbert Rd, Richmond, BC V6X 1A2, Canada map

A Little Night Music is Steven Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, and has been enchanting audiences worldwide since its Broadway debut in 1973. Based on Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, Sondheim collaborated with playwright Hugh Wheeler to adapt the original film into a stunningly sophisticated musical with a timeless score.
Gateway’s presentation of A Little Night Music was envisioned by veteran director, Peter Jorgenson, whose company, Patrick Street Productions has produced award winning shows in the past, including The Light in the Piazza and Rodgers and Hammerstein: Out of a Dream, which was a hit on Gateway’s MainStage during the 2014/2015 season!
Set in Sweden at the turn of the last century, A Little Night Music follows the progressions of infatuation, jealousy and true love as a cast of unforgettable characters meet, couple and uncouple during a weekend at alavish country estate.
Hilariously witty and heartbreaking in turns, Sondheim’s musical weaves together a tangled web of former and current lovers who do their best to navigate the pathways through adoration, desire and regret. With a brilliant cast including Warren Kimmel as Fredrik Egerman and Katey Wright as Desiree Armfeldt, the fires of love in its many forms will never burn more brightly than when this new production of Sondheim’s musical tour de force hits Gateway’s Mainstage this October.

#300-1367 West Broadway, Vancovuer, BC V6H 4A7 map

Join Genesis Fertility Centre on Tuesday, October 17th to learn about infertility and egg freezing options. Get to know the Genesis team, learn more about the services we provide, and mingle with others who are also considering egg freezing.
With the average age of a woman’s first pregnancy in B.C. recently surpassing 31 years old, egg freezing is a viable option for reproductive or family planning. Egg freezing enables more freedom for women by providing the best chance of having a family when ready – whether that’s upon completion of education, reaching a certain career stage, or finding the right partner.
The event will include an information session by Medical Director Dr. Sonya Kashyap, covering the medical and practical aspects of freezing eggs and provide an opportunity for attendees to ask individual questions. Learn about the benefits of freezing, how the process works and who makes a good candidate. Learn why Dr. Kashyap believes there is still a “Fertility Gender Gap” and that professional women face choices that professional men do not. The event will include a small panel of patients who have undergone egg freezing who will will be able to answer any questions guests may have about the process.
Attendees will also get a chance to speak with Dr Aimee Eyvazzadeh, the renowned Egg Whisperer and originator of “Egg Freezing Parties”, who will be joining in via video chat from California!
The event is free to attend, however space is limited and reservations are required. Please email rsvp@genesis-fertility.com or call 604 879 3032 to RSVP.
