COMPANY tells the story of Robert, a single man unable to fully commit to a steady relationship. On the night of his 35th birthday, he contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, he weighs the pros and cons of married life as we are introduced to the women he is dating and “those good and crazy people,” his married friends. In the end, he realizes being alone is “alone, not alive.”
The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark “concept” show, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. An honest, witty, sophisticated look at relationships. Company is as contemporary and relevant as ever (witness the recent hit revivals on Broadway and the West End). It features a brilliant energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best-known songs including Another Hundred People, Ladies Who Lunch, and Being Alive.
