Bruce Linser, who directed both Side By Side By Sondheim and The World Goes ‘Round for MNM Productions, will helm COMPANY, with the talented Paul Reekie returning as musical director.
Show-stopping musical highlights in Stephen Sondheim’s COMPANY include “Another Hundred People,” “Getting Married Today,” “Side By Side,” “Being Alive” and the soul-searing “The Ladies Who Lunch.”
