See the notice below for more details.

Company: Winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and seven 1971 Tony Awards, Company follows our anti-hero bachelor Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl who’s going to marry someone else), Marta (the”peculiar”one), as well as with his married friends. On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to “those good and crazy people,” his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life. In the end, he realizes being alone is “alone, not alive.” An honest, witty, sophisticated look at relationships, Company features a brilliant, energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best-known songs. 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.
