Sierra Stages to Kick Off 6th Season with COMPANY, 2/27-3/22
In COMPANY, five married couples, three single women - and Bobby, the only eligible bachelor in the group, examine and celebrate married life and its alternatives through a series of comic vignettes and powerhouse musical numbers. Since its original acclaimed Broadway production in 1970, COMPANY has been revived on Broadway twice and received numerous productions in the United States and throughout the world. A concert version of the show with Neil Patrick Harris as Bobby was recently seen on PBS. COMPANY has one of Sondheim's most brilliant scores, including "Being Alive," "Side By Side by Side," "The Little Things You Do Together," "Another Hundred People" and "The Ladies Who Lunch".
The Sierra Stages production of COMPANY is directed by Jac Royce, with musical direction by Ken Getz and musical staging by Becky Browning. The cast includes Isaias Acosta, Casey Burke, Nancy Haffey, Kate Haight, Jonathan Hansard, Kay Hight, Tinley Ireland, JR Lewis, Carley Neill, Conor Nolan, Kelly Taylor, Kim Wellman, Stephen Wellman and Carolyn Winters. The cast will be accompanied by a full orchestra consisting of ten instrumentalists and four women who comprise "The Vocal Minority". Set design is by Mike Edwards, lighting design is by Erin Beatie, and costume design is by Cynthia Levesque.
