That moment when you’re preparing your second audition for a musical and realize you’ll be singing for the show’s legendary composer himself… No pressure. Actor Hunter Ryan Herdlicka had that exact experience on his way to landing the role of Henrik in the 2009 Broadway revival of A Little Night Music, by Stephen Sondheim. Join host Sally Fuller and Herdlicka for a chat about all things Night Music- what it was like to work with true Broadway legends, how he learned to play an instrument in four weeks, and how he came out of the experience with a dear friend, Elaine Stritch. Visit our website for today's show notes including videos of the performances mentioned, addendums, and some photos from A Little Night Music.
