Blog Review: Shreveport Little Theater emphasizes the laughter in Sondheim's musical, "Company;" performances continue through July 14

Stephen Sondheim's 1970 musical, "Company," as presented by Shreveport Little Theater on Sat, June 29, was rich of music - Brad Kozak directed the 13-piece orchestra - and filled with wit.

Hilarious riffs were handled with aplomb by deadpan Brian Smith, an electrified Laura Beeman, and masterfully stoned Blake Powell.

Cute and fit leading man Eric Lincoln stripped nicely for a sex scene with the appealing Anna Maria Sparke.

It's an uptown comedy - dated, but in an entertainingly retro way - in which the mirth is the cast's strength.

Special compliments to manic but sharp drummer John Walsh and to Kozak for his turns on marimba and bongos.
