StillPointe Theatre Presents Stephen Sondheim's COMPANY
StillPointe Theatre presents the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book, "Company," over three weekends January 18 - February 2. Directed by Deirdre McAllister, "Company" will feature current StillPointe company members and guest artists, who will bring this award-winning musical to life for audiences.
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 array of interactions.
"Company" features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim's best known songs. The strength of the piece lies in its vivid yet real characters, meaning impressive technical aspects aren't necessary to convey the story. It can be told as effectively with a cavalcade of automated set pieces as it can with a chair or two. Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in at least one of the characters onstage.
Performances are January 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, 31 at 8:00 p.m. and February 1 - 2 at 8:00 p.m. at The Wilks School At Grace & St. Peter's which is located at, 707 Park Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21201.
