by Abby Rowold - Sep 17, 2017

Fourteen years after it premiered on Broadway, WICKED was shockingly timely and far more substantive that I was expecting. And, it was bizarre how much it seemed to reflect certain current events.

(alphabetical listings; Equity, Equity-waiver & Non-Equity productions are mixed) (artists performing outside LA may be included in performance categories) No set, costume, or technical awards. I leave that to the bigger awards and to the expertise of those who really know those fields inside out.

BWW Reviews: Bucks County Playhouse Presents an Enjoyable COMPANY
by Kelli Curtin - Jun 8, 2015

'Phone rings, door chimes, in comes company.' This is how the title song from Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's musical, COMPANY, begins. This musical is about marriage and commitment, and it is set in New York City. COMPANY is considered one of the more challenging musicals for the cast, crew and orchestra, but if it is done well it provides for a highly enjoyable evening of theatrical entertainment. Bucks County Playhouse produces an entertaining production of COMPANY, with a strong cast.
