    It's Bobby's 35th birthday, and he's still single, trying to find a way to have serious relationship without a serious commitment. But as his friends—all couples at different stages in their marriages—impose their unique perspectives of relationship function and dysfunction on him, Bobby is forced to consider relaxing his determined grip on bachelorhood as he begins to explore one of life's greatest questions—what does it mean to be alive? Winner of seven Tony Awards, Company is a witty, sophisticated and deeply honest look at contemporary relationships. Featuring some of Sondheim's best-known songs, including "Side by Side by Side," "Marry Me a Little," and "Being Alive," Company is considered a true masterpiece by one of the finest composers of our time. Directed by Writers Theatre favorite William Brown, who previously helmed WT's hit production of Sondheim's A Little Night MusicCompany will continue the Theatre's tradition of breathing fresh life into great American musicals.

  • Death of a Streetcar Named Virginia Woolf: A Parody

    7:30 PM @ Writers Theatre

    Writers Theatre with the Second City Presents Death of a Streetcar Named Virginia Woolf: A Parody Created by Tim Ryder and Tim Sniffen Written by Tim Sniffen  Directed by Stuart Carden and Artistic Director Michael Halberstam This hilarious result of collaboration between Writers Theatre and Chicago's world-renowned comedy theatre, The Second City, asks the intriguing question: What happens when the most recognizable characters from some of the greatest American plays of the 20th century suddenly find themselves sharing the same stage? When a mysterious invitation brings Blanche DuBois back to New Orleans, she finds herself once again face-to-face with the smoldering Stanley Kowalski. They are soon joined by luckless salesman Willy Loman and hard-drinking, hard-fighting couple George and Martha, and suddenly all bets are off. Add a folksy Stage Manager and the comic genius of The Second City team, and the question quickly becomes: Will the American theatre ever be the same? Co-directed by Artistic Director Michael Halberstam and Stuart Carden, this deliciously satirical mash-up of A Streetcar Named Desire, Death of a Salesman, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Our Town opens the Gillian Theatre with a tongue-in-cheek salute to the celebrated icons of American drama.
