Directors Roundtable Backdrops
Traditionally, productions of Company focus more on the relationships between the characters than over-the-top technical aspects. However, even simple productions can benefit from a great backdrop. The majority of the scenes in Company take place in Bobby's and his friends' apartments. BROOKLYN LOFT can easily be converted into each separate space with the help of key set pieces. Another option would be to add your own apartment sets in front of the Manhattan skyline--for New York really is a character in this show itself. LIGHTS OF N.Y.C. is bright, vibrant, and a little surreal. BROOKLYN BRIDGE AT DUSK is a more realistic, yet still sparkling, option. For a productions set in the 1970s, like the original, CONTEMPORARY OFFICE INTERIOR has great retro flair and, despite the name, makes an excellent apartment. If you wish to add other locations, consider busy, slightly gritty UNDER THE BRIDGE for "Another Hundred People"--or, opt for CENTRAL PARK to coordinate with the interspersed scenes. DISCO CLUB is a vibrant ode to 70s nightlife that's perfect for the scene where Bobby, Joanne, and Larry hit the town. Choose TheatreWorld and we promise you'll be in good hands and good "company"!
