With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by George Furth, Company runs through Feb. 23 at the O'Reilly Theater, Pittsburgh Public's home in the heart of Downtown's Cultural District.
Jim Stanek (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Rivals, Little Women, Lestat, The Story of My Life) plays Bobby in a cast that also features Benjamin Howes, Nancy Anderson, Paul Binotto, Elizabeth Broadhurst, Daina Michelle Griffith, Daniel Krell, Billy Hepfinger, Courtney Balan, Darren Eliker, Judy Blazer, Lee Harrington, Lara Hayhurst and Hannah Beth Shankman.
Company, according to PPT, "evokes the excitement of Manhattan where eligible bachelor, Robert, is surrounded by five married couples and three single women."

Kramer (production stage manager) and Fredric H. Orner (assistant stage manager).
