The vocals were excellent!! As this was only their 2nd preview, the Artistic Director commented before the show began that they are still ironing out a few things. To this extent, I felt that the blocking for several numbers needed to be reworked...continued

Actor's performances were much better than the storyline. Sit in the center seats for best sight line. Avoid seats left of the stage in the lower rows.

Funny, well staged, engaging actors and a surprisingly effective small orchestra--plus Sondheim's music. Fun evening.

Description

Set in New York, Sondheim’s groundbreaking musical Company tells the story of five couples and their mutual friend Robert who, at age 35, is reluctant to settle down and get married like the rest of his friends. He’s sure that the perfect girl is waiting for him, and until she makes herself known, he is content to amuse himself with the countless women who come to New York every day. So, he watches and learns from the various couples and sees both the wonders and pitfalls of relationships. In the end though, Robert realizes that while relationships rarely turn out like they do in fairy tales, life is still better when you have someone to share it with.
