Musical “Company” Soho Theatre
This great classic of musical comedy, a work by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, will be performed for the first time in Spanish by Antonio Banderas as director and star of the show.
Set in New York City, it is a play that explores the human being himself, his fears, love and heartbreak.
