FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Friday, June 9, 2017
We are proud to announce that Stephen Sondheim’s Company will be our Fall 2017 production! Please keep a look out for an audition notice to be posted shortly!
Company revolves around Bobby, a single man who seems to be unable to commit to a steady relationship, a handful of married couples who happen to be his best friends, and his three “girlfriends.” Bobby is the thread that connects the vignettes as he examines not only his own relationships, but also the marriages of his well-meaning friends. Company is not like most book musicals (musicals with a script) where a plot is laid out in order with an obvious beginning, middle, and end to a story, but is composed of short vignettes in no particular or chronological order.
Company with Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and Book by George Furth, had its Broadway debut in April of 1970 and garnered a record-setting 14 Tony nominations for that year, winning six, including Best Musical, Best Book for a Musical, and Best Score. Company has also had several successful and award winning revivals including a 2007 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
With popular and familiar songs such as “Another Hundred People,” “Marry Me a Little,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” and “Being Alive” Company is just as entertaining, relevant, and relatable as it was when it debuted in 1970. Relationships are still just as complex and individuals are still searching, resisting, and discovering themselves in big cities and small hamlets all over the world.
SAVE THE DATES! Company will run TWO weekends, October 15-17 & October 20-22 at Just Off Broadway @ Epiphany, 4301 Raspe Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21206. Show times are 8:00 PM on Fridays & Saturdays and 3:00 PM matinees on Sundays.
