Webster Faculty Direct, Design 'Company' at Insight Theatre June 17-July 3

Several Webster University faculty members are involved in the production of "Company" at Insight Theatre, which runs June 17-July 3.

The production is directed by Doug Finlayson, professor and head of the directing program in Webster's Conservatory of Theatre Arts. The production's set designers are Peter and Margery Spack, who are both alumni and adjunct faculty members.

From musical theatre's most renowned composer, Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern musical genre and the winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book.

On the night of his 35th birthday, 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.

Tickets may be purchased here.
