Audiences Love CSU’s Production of the Musical COMPANY


There is only one more weekend to experience Cleveland State University's production of the Stephen Sondheim musical, COMPANY ! Here’s what some audience members are saying:

  • “Wonderful performance - loved the energy!”
  • “Totally professional. Beautiful job.”
  • “Thanks for this entertaining musical!”

CSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance, a Resident Company of Playhouse Square, is running this honest look at modern adult relationships now through November 5, 2017. Directed by CSU Associate Professor Russ Borski, COMPANY is considered a trailblazer, having won seven Tony Awards.

Shows run on the Allen Theatre Mainstage Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 216.241.6000, visiting, or at the State Theatre Ticket Office, located at 1519 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115. Tickets are also available 60-minutes prior to performances at the Allen Theatre Complex.

A special public ASL Performance will be presented on Thursday, November 2 with ticket code ASL.

A $25.00 Dinner and a Show Night will be offered in partnership with Elements Bistro on Euclid and available on Friday, November 3 by pre-reservation only by using ticket code BENCSU.

“The cast consists of 18 students within the Music, and the Theatre and Dance Departments, as well as six pit musicians. Sondheim’s classic musical paints a wide canvas of those who can commit to love and those who are continually searching,” says director Borski.

With audience feedback like, “…well-done in all ways!” and “CSU theatre productions are always incredible,” you do not want to miss the final weekend.
