Chicago Oscar-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones is making her Broadway debut as 40-ish actress Desiree Armfeldt in the highly anticipated revival of composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 classic A Little Night Music, which is set to open Dec.13. People.com has a first look at the star onstage. Zeta-Jones, 40, stars opposite five-time Tony-award-winner Angela Lansbury, who plays her worldly wise mother in the musical. Inspired by the 1955 Ingmar Bergman film romance Smiles of a Summer Night, the sophisticated show looks at the highs and lows of life and love and contains the hit song – delivered by Desiree – “Send in the Clowns.”
