Company

An individual facing an impending 35th birthday struggles to come up with a wish to make as they blow out the birthday candles surrounded by a group of married friends. At a turning point in life this person who has thus far walked a solitary path faces the imperative to come to terms with either being happy as they are, or seeking a romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, our central character attempts to understand what marriage and commitment mean in their own life. When it premiered in 1971, Company received both the Drama Desk and Tony Awards for Best Musical, Book, Score and Lyrics.

Rehearsals are currently scheduled to begin Monday, September 23. 

Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and librettist George Furth also collaborated on the musical Merrily We Go Along and the drama Getting Away with Murder. Sondheim has also written music and/or lyrics for other great musicals, including West Side Story, Gypsy, Into the Woods, Follies, A Little Night Music, Assassins, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George. 

Richard Gray has directed Lift, Grand Hotel, Drood and Quilters at Cornish. Rich recently appeared as Officer Krupke in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s West Side Story,  and his musical Cold Turkey will be workshopped in August as part of Village Theatre’s 19th Annual Festival of New Musicals. Rich is  currently taking on the role of King Neptune in various Seafair activities around the region. He will be teaching several musical theater classes this fall at Cornish.

September 24 - December 7, MadArt

Lure

MadArt presents Lure, a site-specific installation by artists/architects Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers of Dream the Combine, in collaboration with Seattle-based artist/engineer Clayton Binkley. Inspired by the interplay of light, people, and the architectural environment of MadArt Studio, Lure explores how the gallery engages with public space. The structure—both object and environment, lure and trap—consists of hovering pathways formed by steel supports and sliding opacities of mesh and plaster. Visitors step from the sidewalk directly into the artwork, instantly becoming immersed in a looping circulatory system that encourages exploration, curiosity, and reciprocal engagement between the form and its audiences.
