Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by George Furth
Directed by Barry Fuller
Musical Direction by Tony Lee Garner
A landmark musical, this is one of those few shows that enter the permanent lore of the theatre by altering the vocabulary of dramatic possibilities. Company’s vignettes depicting personal relationships in an urban society are as poignant, as funny and as informative today as they were on opening night in 1971. The McCoy Theatre and Stephen Sondheim are a great team with a great history—Merrily We Roll Along, Anyone Can Whistle, Sweeney Todd, and now, Company!
By Donald Margulies
Directed by Henry Swanson
Winner of the 1992 OBIE Award for best new American play, art—what it is, how it’s made, what it’s worth and who says so—is the concern of this gripping drama. Its taut scenes dart from past to present and back as characters are forced to deal with the unanswerable question of legacy of the Holocaust, lost love, the role of the artist and the plight of the human soul at the end of a ragged century.
Directed by Frank Bradley
Written in the 17th century this is a classic comedy in which, according to Richard Wilbur, “1) a knave tries to control life by cold chicanery, 2) a fool tries to oppress life by unconscious misuse of the highest values and, 3) life, happily, will not have it.” What was funny and perplexing then, you will find again in our very present and “timeless” Tartuffe.
