Keeping ‘Company’ With the Good Shepherds Players

“Company” is an early 1970s musical revolving around a bachelor whose friends are all married and who is interested in and resistant to marriage all at once. Coming between “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” on one spectrum and “Into the Woods” on another, Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” broke new ground in examining the complexities of contemporary relationships in vignettes, although the unconventional subject matter and the non-linear technique are placed “Side by Side” (to quote one of the song titles) with more traditional Broadway elements.

Late F.C. Resident’s Art Evokes Dream-Like Feelings

Waking up from a dream, one usually remembers bits that seem at first unrelated, but which follow a theme.  The art exhibition “Nocturne Eternal,” currently on display at the Salve Regina Gallery at the Catholic University of America, follows this pattern. John Figura (lifetime resident of the Annandale/Falls Church area and late professor of painting at Catholic University) vividly captured the moments of awakening, clearly shown in this exhibition of his nocturnally-themed oil paintings.
