‘Company’ at Actor’s Express

2016 August 6


If you’re a fan of musicals and have never seen Steven Sondheim’s “Company,” you need to get to Actor’s Express now. The 1970’s show ran on Broadway for more than two years and won six Tony Awards, including for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (George Furth), Best Original Score and Best Lyrics. This show, however, will only be around for a couple of more weeks, so get the to the theater now.

“Company” revolves around Bobby (Lowrey Brown), a philanderer whose friends try to convince him to grow up and get married now that he is turning 35 years old. Notable songs include “Side by Side by Side,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” sung by Elaine Stritch in the original cast recording and by Libby Whittemore in the Actor’s Express cast, “Barcelona,” and “Getting Married Today,” whose lyrics rip near speeds of a hundred¬†words per stanza¬†and are sung beautifully by Amy (Jessica Miesel) just minutes before marrying Paul (Dan Ford) as she realizes she can’t go through with it.

Directed by Freddie Ashely, “Company” runs through Sept. 11 at Actor’s Express.
