Someone is waiting! Producers of the Tony Award-winning revival of “Company” have announced that the musical will tour North America during the 2023-2024 season. It won’t go all the way to Barcelona, but it will head across the stats.
The production will launch at the Fisher Theater in Detroit, playing from Octover 17 through Octover 29. Additional engagements at the Buell Theatre in Denver and the Paramount Theatre in Seattle will take place in May 2024 and July 2024, respectively.
Additional stops, as well as casting and on-sale dates, will be announced. Directed by Marianne Elliott, who won her third Tony for directing the Broadway production, Company features a book by George Furth and a score by the legendary Stephen Sondheim. Elliott’s production follows Bobbie, a woman wrestling with the idea of marriage — by exploring those of her dearest friends — on the occasion of her 35th birthday. (Furth’s original book featured a male Bobby.)
Company will feature choreography by Liam Steel, music supervision and additional vocal arrangements by Joel Fram, scenic and costume design by Bunny Christie (Tony winner for her scenic design of the Broadway revival), the Tony-winning lighting design of Neil Austin, Tony-nominated sound design of Ian Dickinson, Tony-nominated orchestrations of David Cullen, dance arrangements by Sam Davis, illusions by Chris Fisher and hair/wig and makeup design by Campbell Young Associates. Casting will be by Tara Rubin.
This production of Company was the final Broadway show that Sondheim was involved with prior to his death in November of 2021. The North American tour of Company is being produced by Elliott & Harper Productions, Work Light Productions and Catherine Schreiber.
