Louise Pitre, Nia Vardalos, Brent Carver & More Join Dan Chameroy in Cast of Theatre 20's COMPANY, Beg. Tonight
Theatre 20's highly-anticipated production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Company will play the Berkeley Street Theatre Downstairs from tonight, June 21 to July 13, 2014. This show has not been seen in Toronto in almost 30 years.
The creative team will be helmed by Gary Griffin, with Founding Artist Dan Chameroy as charming and commitment-phobic bachelor Robert. The rest of the cast features: Founding Artist Brent Carver as Harry, Christine Donato as Kathy, Founding Artist David Keeley as Peter, Jeff Lillico as Paul, Joe Matheson as Larry, Marisa McIntyre as April, Founding Artist Nora McLellan as Sarah, Founding Artist Louise Pitre as Joanne, Founding Artist Eliza-Jane Scott as Susan, Founding Artist Carly Street as Amy, Founding Artist Steven Sutcliffe as David, and Nia Vardalos as Jenny.
Company, said by many to have launched the age of the modern musical, centres on Robert, a single man unable to commit to a steady relationship, the married couples who are his best friends, and his three on-again off-again girlfriends. Set in upper-middle-class Manhattan and told through a series of vignettes in no particular chronological order, each character and scene is linked by the celebration of Bobby's 35th birthday.
An honest, witty, sophisticated look at relationships, Company is as contemporary and relevant as ever (seen with the recent hit revivals on Broadway and the West End as well as its transfer to movie theatres). It features a brilliant, energetic score containing many of Sondheim's best-known songs (including "Another Hundred People," "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Being Alive").
