“Two Gentlemen of Verona” isn’t the only play opening this week in the Garden Grove-Stanton-Westminster area. The others are:
• “Company” by George Furth and Stephen Sondheim opens this week at The Gem theatre in Garden Grove. In a group of New York friends, Robert, now 35, is the only one not married or getting married. Although his friends talk about the joys of coupling, he sees their fights, plans, scheming affairs, escape into drugs and alcohol and talk of divorce. But is there a point to being alive if you have no one to share it with? Showtime is 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday until July 31. The Gem is located at 12852 Main St. Tickets are $20.
• “The Pajama Game” by George Abbott and Richard Bissell, music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross opens Friday at the Westminster Community Theatre. At a pajama factory, Sid the superintendent falls in love with Babe, the leader of the union. In the middle of this, there is a push from the union to raise the pay by seven and a half cents per hour. Showtime is at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. General admission is $20, senior prices are $18 and students and children are $10. The theater is located at 7272 Maple St. in Westminster.
• “Brigadoon” by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe opens Friday at the Westminster Rose Center Theatre. The Scottish town of Brigadoon appears for only one day every 100 years. However, on this particular day, two American tourists happen in on a wedding. The magic of the town says that each century will feel only like a night for its inhabitants, so long as no one ever leaves. The new Americans pose some problems for this age-old pact. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. General admission is $22; students and senior tickets are $17. The theater is at 14140 All American Way.
