Company at USN 

This historically important 1970 Stephen Sondheim musical has been produced twice in Nashville in recent years: ACT 1 mounted it in 2002, Vanderbilt University Theatre in 2004. What's unique about the current effort is that teenage students at University School of Nashville will be traversing the thicket of thorny romantic and marital issues that drive the George Furth script. The setting is New York City, where a bachelor named Robert--surrounded by well-intentioned, usually married friends--comes to grips with the pros and cons of single life versus those of being in a relationship. There are some classic Broadway songs here--"Side by Side by Side," "The Ladies Who Lunch," "Being Alive"--but even the less familiar numbers have wit, sophistication and, occasionally, urgent energy. Catherine Coke directs.
