And that “Company” is none other than Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical of the same name. This show was a huge Broadway hit. It garnered 14 Tony awards and won six in the 70s. It is still part of our musical culture and many of its most popular songs are still alive today, such as “Being Alive” and “Side by Side-What would we do without you?”

“I’m thrilled to bring Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” to the Milford Theater stage as our first musical,” said Artistic Director Beth O’Neil. “Everything about this production is top-notch, from our brilliant director Angel Berlane Mulcahy, our producing partner Lorenzo Medico, to every cast member and our production crew. We are bringing a Broadway-level show to Milford. Our partnership with this incredible team is just beginning and I couldn’t be more excited about it.”

It is particularly fitting that Angel Berlane Mulcahy has brought this production to the Milford Theater. Her grandparents lived in Dingmans Ferry and for a short time she was a waitress at the Milford Diner. Berlane Mulcahy has been acting and directing for 28 years. She has spent the last 10-12 years directing, much of it in Wilkes-Barre, which has a lot of theatrical productions.

Her goal is to find actors from different areas such as Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Newton, and Mt Pocono. Her team of 14 actors had agreed to perform, regardless of the role they ended up with. She says, “I want people to know about this gem of a theater. My goal is to potentially pull from this group of people that we’ve brought together and do something really special at this theater.”

Berlane Mulcahy is a high-energy multi-tasker. In addition to her role as a director, she is also a photographer and owns a photography business called, “On My Cue Photography.”

As if that weren’t enough, she also co-owns with her aunt, Bella Slumber Gardens,” a party planning service that arranges slumber parties and other types of parties as well.

The show is a production with lots of singing and dancing. It’s the story of a 35-year-old confirmed bachelor who contemplates his unmarried status on his birthday. Meanwhile, his friends, over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, try to explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. This is a high comedy musical.

Some of the performers are familiar to Milford audiences. Sandy Stalter, the musical director, will also be playing one of the two keyboards. There will be a drummer and a bass player, as well. Milford’s own Taylor James appears as Paul. There are 12 memorable songs in the show plus a finale. One thing is guaranteed – you’ll go out humming at least one of them.

Performance dates are slated for Nov. 10, 11, 17, and 18 at 8 p.m., plus 2 p.m. matinees on Nov. 12 and 19.

Tickets range from $30 to $45, with tables at $150. The theater is located at 114 E. Catharine St. For tickets and more, visit
