Musical Theatre students at the University's London College of Music gave a rousing performance in their production, Company.
Company was originally written by George Furth with music and lyrics by celebrated composer Stephen Sondheim.
The first night of the production took place on 16 May 2012 at Watermans Theatre in Brentford and the casts' stunning performances received a well deserved standing ovation.
The songs and orchestra bustled along with great verve and energy under the musical direction of George Carter. There were many highlights including the uncertain bride, the trio of girl friends and the final tour de force of Joanna expounding upon 'the ladies who lunch'. These and many more all let Robert into their lives and throughout the show he reflects and observes what is missing in his own life. Robert, played with great sensitivity and humour by Marcel Whyte, drifts from one relationship to another as he aims to discover the mystery of 'Being Alive' sung with great passion in the final moments of the show.
Commenting on the production, Sara Raybould, Head of the London College of Music, said:
'A wonderful evening and congratulations to all involved in the creation of the show.'
