Prepare to LOL at the theater because Upstart Production is showcasing a localized version of American composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical-comedy play, Company.It is set to hit the stage on September 13 and September 22 at the Globe Auditorium, Maybank Performing Arts Theater, BGC Arts Center in Taguig.
Company, one of Sondheim’s most beloved works, is a series of vignettes about five couples and their friend, a perpetual bachelor, who examines what it means to be in a relationship. With its unforgettable score and the sparse, elegant wit, every major production of it in Broadway and the West End has earned recognition.
Upstart’s version of Company will feature theater veterans like Ojay Mariano (Huling El Bimbo), Cathy Azanza-Dy (Silent Sky), Ariel Reonal (Miss Saigon), and Caisa Borromeo (Silent Sky), along with a host of hot up-and-corners from the theater and entertainment industry.
The play will be directed by Topper Fabregas. He assembled an impressive team to help him realize his unique vision for the show, which includes TOYM Awardee and former Hong Kong Disneyland musical director, Rony Fortich, for the music direction and New-York based Joey Mendoza for the production design.
You need a company and ease yourself as you watch the performance from great artists at the musical-comedy play Company.
