As promised in an earlier blog, Her Ladyship attended the July 2 performance of Toronto’s Theatre 20 production of the Stephen Sondheim’s play, Company, and she is pleased to report the play was a triumph.
The cast, consisting of many Theatre 20 founding artists, was superb. Each actor enthralled and emoted with vocal gusto as the story of love, relationships and marriage took its predictable, and unpredictable turns, in song and dance, in pitter patter and playfulness, in seductiveness and snarkiness.
Special shouts out to Chris Porter, the stage manager, who did yeoman duty keeping the production rolling along smoothly and to the the five-piece band led by Scott Christian who enabled the production admirably.
For Toronto readers, Company is at the Berkeley Street Theatre until July 13. Don’t miss it!
