ABOUT THE SHOW

On the night of his 35th birthday, a confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – "those good and crazy people [his] married friends" – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.

Company features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim's best-known songs. The strength of the piece lies in its vivid yet real characters, meaning impressive technical aspects aren't necessary to convey the story. It can be told as effectively with a cavalcade of automated set pieces as it can with a chair or two. Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in at least one of the characters onstage.Type your paragraph here.



Reviews:


“Being this close to this amount of talent is exhilarating... The evening I attended Raincity Theatre’s Company, I knew I was in great company: Sondheim and side by side with more than a dozen of Vancouver’s finest.” Jo Ledingham

“Chris Adams’ production of Company offers an entertaining and provocative idea-fest in the intimacy of a small space.” Jerry Wasserman, The Vancouver Sun

“Winsby can sing and, on opening night, he nailed Bobby’s final number, Being Alive” Colin Thomas

“Individually this cast may be at the top of their game, but when they come together, it blows the roof off of this unconventional venue. With few of the trappings of a more traditional musical, the act two blockbuster “Side by Side by Side/What Would We Do Without You?” is a revelation.” Mark Robbins, Vancouver Plays
