Moving trivia to the appropriate tab.
* BillingDisplacement - On a fairly regular basis, including both Broadway productions, the actress playing Madame Armfeldt gets top billing alongside the leads (Desiree and Fredrik), despite not having nearly as large a part. In particular, the recent revival gave Angela Lansbury higher billing than Alexander Hanson, who played Fredrik, because... well, because she's Creator/AngelaLansbury.

* LifeImitatesArt - Victoria Mallory and Len Cariou, the actors for Anne and Frederik, were dating when the original production opened. When it closed, Victoria Mallory ran away with Mark Lambert, Henrik's actor. Their daughter, Ramona Mallory, played Anne in the 2009 Broadway revival. [[note]]It is perhaps worth noting that though their characters were 18 and 40something, respectively, Mallory and Cariou were themselves 24 and 34 during the run, not nearly so unusual an age gap.[[/note]]

''{{A Little Night Music}}'' is a musical with music and lyrics by {{Stephen Sondheim}} and book by Hugh Wheeler, [[AllMusicalsAreAdaptations based on]] the Ingmar Bergman film ''Smiles of a Summer Night''. The score is notable for having been written almost entirely in waltz time (3/4) or multiples thereof, and is considered one of Sondheim's greatest works (it's also one of the lightest and most accessible, ''[[AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum Forum]]'' and ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'' aside, which makes it a great introduction for nascent Sondheim fans). It concerns a series of interconnected {{Love Triangle}}s, which end up resolving themselves on a summer's night.

* HilariouslyMissingThePoint: Carl Magnus continuously fails to grasp ''any'' of his wife's hints. When Charlotte informs hm that Fredrik is heading to the Armfeldt home in the country, Carl Magnus decides the best course of action...is to head there utterly invited like it's a party. Charlotte is utterly floored.
