Company One


“To attend one of their performances is often to feel yourself immersed in exuberance, with waves of energy pouring from the stage, usually reciprocated by an avidly enthusiastic audience that is far younger and more diverse than the Boston theater norm.”
-The Boston Globe

“The subject matter and the casting is a continuation of the laudable mission of Company One in terms of opening the theater to diversity. Everybody talks the talk, but Company One walks the walk.”
-WBUR’s The Artery

“Company One has drawn that audience, in part, by choosing plays that carry messages of social change and that contain the potential to be theatrically dynamic — then delivering on those messages and that potential.”
-The Boston Globe
