**** Highly Recommended **** Mercury Theater is celebrating the grand opening of their brand new venue, the Venus Cabaret Theater (right next door), with a party! Guests (that means all of you) are invited to enjoy party appetizers, birthday cake, maybe an adult beverage (at the cash bar), and Stephen Sondheim’s birthday party musical, “Company”. Kudos to Director L. Walter Stearns for his spot-on casting. Gotta love those clever, complicated Sondheim lyrics! 4 Big Spotlights
