A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Musical – “Tonight”


Unfortunately, before things can get more interesting during the dinnertime conversation, Captain Widdershins announces that it’s time for bedtime. So off to the bunk beds they go. Nonetheless, their first day on the Queequeg is the first nice time the Baudelaires have had in a long time. Sure they may be living in a submarine that’s in extreme disrepair. But at least they’re not being treated like fugitives, don’t have to pretend being someone else, and actually get to sleep in beds. Though Violet is the one enjoying her time the least since she still misses her Quigley. In Klaus’s case, he’s head over heels with Fiona and she with him. In fact, everyone can see the sparks between them. However, their relationship is about to hit troubled waters in both the literal and metaphorical sense. They’ll endure more obstacles and drama that Violet and Quigley didn’t have to experience.


Of course, I understand that if there’s a romance in a work, then a duet is necessary. And I couldn’t think of anything better than West Side Story’s “Tonight” where Tony and Maria profess their love and say good night to each other before parting ways before all the shit starts hitting the fan the next day. What do you expect? It’s basically Romeo and Juliet based in 1950s New York City between a gangs of white boys and Puerto Ricans. In this one, I have Klaus and Fiona sing this duet as they go to bed before the next day’s external circumstances, family dramas, and the decisions they make eventually drive them apart.


“Tonight” (ASOUE Version)

Sung by Klaus Baudelaire and Fiona

Only you, you’re the only thing I’ll see forever.
In my eyes, in my words and in ev’rything I do,
Nothing else but you.

And there’s nothing for me but Fiona,
Ev’ry sight that I see is Fiona.

Klaus, Klaus…

Always you, ev’ry thought I’ll ever know.
Ev’rywhere I go, you’ll be

All the world is only you and me!

Tonight, tonight,
It all began tonight,
I saw you and the world went away.

Tonight, tonight,
There’s only you tonight,
What you are, what you do, what you say.

Today, I never had the feeling
A miracle would happen.
I know now I was wrong.

For here you are,
And what was just a world is a star

Tonight. tonight,
The world is full of light,
With suns and moons all over the place.

Tonight, tonight,
The world is wild and bright.
Going mad, shooting sparks into space.

Today the world was just an address.
A place for me to live in,
No better than all right,

But here you are
And what was just a world is a star

My stepdad says it’s lights out

I love you.

Yes, yes, now go to sleep. We have a lot of work tomorrow.

Good night, good night,
Sleep well and when you dream,
Dream of me…
