Actor's Express to Kick Off Season 29 with Stephen Sondheim's COMPANY

Actor's Express opens its 2016-2017 season with a modern take on Stephen Sondheim's game-changing musical Company. After his acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd last season, Actor's Express Artistic Director Freddie Ashley will direct the funny and incisive comedy with a "reignited love for Sondheim." The cast is led by Lowrey Brown as perpetual bachelor Bobby. Brown recently played Enjolras in Les Miserables at Aurora Theatre and Mr. Nevins in Edward Foote at the Alliance Theatre. And, Atlanta cabaret legend Libby Whittemore will mark her return to the theatre stage as Joanne, singing her rendition of one of the show's most memorable songs "The Ladies Who Lunch."

Performances of Company are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 PM, Sundays at 2 PM and select Saturdays at 2 PM. Season subscriptions are on sale now and may be purchased at actors-express.com or by calling 404-607-7469. Single tickets for Company will start at $28 and go on sale June 20, 2016.
