Phone rings. Door chimes. In comes Company
On his 35th birthday, Bobby—a commitment-phobic bachelor—searches for the answers to love and life in New York City. While enjoying the company of some lovely ladies, he observes both the joys and pitfalls of marriage from his five quirky couple friends – but is he ready? Only Bobby can find the answer in this witty and piercing examination of matrimony. For how else can you treat marriage, but as a comedy?
The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark multiple Tony Award-winner, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. Stephen Sondheim—the most significant creative force in musical theater during the past half-century—delivers an honest, witty, sophisticated look at relationships, and Company is as contemporary and relevant as ever while featuring a brilliant energetic score containing many of Sondheim's best-loved songs.
