Great voices with standout supporting roles. Way too long due to drug out business. Otherwise not a hit but worth seeing. Theater parking is nonexistent!!!!!!!!!! Being handicapped, I can no longer attend.

Our party of 4 was disappointed in this performance. Although, the singing and dancing were fine, it was tooooo long and repetitious. We were upset with the homosexual reference by one of the couples, totally unnecessary!!!! Was that truly in...continued

Cast did an excellent job with what they had. The story
line was minimal. The songs were forgettable. It was OK
overall but I would not recommend it.

I loved this play! A friend recommended it to me, so we went for my birthday weekend. I loved the subject matter.(Marriage). Great costumes and set (Set in the 1960s). Catchy songs. Funny lines. One of the best plays I've seen at the Cygnet. My...continued

The actors did a great job. Enjoyed the singing and dancing very much. I wasn't thrilled with the play itself. Some parts seemed really kind of strange ... silly ... disconnected. My 3 stars is because of the play content itself, not the...continued

Did not live up to my expectations. Not really bad, but the acting was uninspired. It was a solid so-so.

I have seen this show several times before and finally a production that deserves all the kudos it is receiving! EXCELLENT cast, fun & crisp choreography, great direction! My ONLY complaint was the post on stage left (audience right) that blocked...continued

Enjoyable with a few great moments but too long, material is dated and the humor predictable. Some of the actors seem miscast like Bobby, who played it like a smirky 24 year old, but isn't he supposed to be 35 with some NYC life experience under...continued

I have seen 6 productions of "Company", and this was certainly the best!! The Cast was strong, the direction, outstanding--and, of course, Sondheim's music is delicious! A Must-See!!!

Extremely enjoyable show! Typical Stephen Sondheim. Tough intervals for soloists to sing but they pulled them off for the most part. The intimate setting of the Old Town Theatre gave the audience a feeling of being a great part of the action. ...continued

This show is hilarious. Casting is great and the vocals are all very good, esp. by the lead male role by Andrew Wells Ryder. Especially enjoyed the scenes "Karate" and Amy singing really fast "I'm not getting married". The staging was great and...continued

Fun show with a great cast - lots of laughs and terrific music; however, we found the show to be a tad too long at 2 hrs. 45 min. with the intermission. It could be a about 15 - 20 minutes shorter without sacrificing quality.

This was a good show. Funny and sometimes thought provoking. It wasn't Broadway but it was well worth the time and money to see.

This was the 2nd performance of "Company" that we have seen this year. It is well staged and the cast is first rate. Evelyn and Justin MacCarthy

Wonderful cast, music was terrific, Bobby was adorable. Seat was not great, way off to the side. Next time I'll move one $$ up the scale when going to the Old Town Theatre.

Cygnet has another winner with Company. The creative staging, choreography and direction bring new life to this veteran Sondheim musical. I recognized many of the songs, even though I'd never seen the show before. Our discount seats were on the...continued

Fantastic show. There is no bad seat at the theater in Old Town, so it is save to buy a ticket through Goldstar. Go see "Company" and enjoy
