Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Cygnet Theatre's COMPANY!

By: Jun. 17, 2013

Cygnet Theatre's ongoing love affair with the works of Stephen Sondheim (A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Assassins) continues as their new season launches with Company, the Tony Award-winning musical exploration of marriage and commitment. Company is a musical comedy based on a book by George Furth with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The original production premiered in 1970 and was nominated for a record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six. Company runs July 5th through August 18. Check out a first look at the cast below!

The plot revolves around Bobby (a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage), the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends. Company is a concept musical composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by a celebration for Bobby's 35th birthday. The show has enjoyed several revivals including a 2006 version that won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical.

Directed by Sean Murray, Cygnet's Artistic Director with choreography by David Brannen, Companyfeatures an ensemble cast of fourteen actors and an additional 6 musicians. Musical direction will be provided by Patrick Marion. Cygnet traditionally likes to tackle large-scale musicals which play well in their 246-seat theater in the heart of Old Town.

Performances of Company are July 5 through August 18, 2013. Show times are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm and 7pm.
