“Company” Opens at Circle Theatre August 6
Circle Theatre continues the 2015 season in August with COMPANY, a game-changing musical that features a sophisticated and honest look at modern, adult relationships. From musical theatre's most renowned composer, Stephen Sondheim, COMPANY is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre. With a book by George Furth and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, this Tony Award winning musical (Including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book) runs August 6-22.
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, his friends -- "those good and crazy people [his] married friends" -- explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious, yet accurate, array of interactions.
The Circle Theatre production of Company will be directed by Fred Sebulske. Sebulske.
