Winner of six Tony Awards on Broadway, including Best Musical.

Description

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. During its two-year initial run on Broadway, Company went on to win six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The musical has since enjoyed recent hit revivals on Broadway and the West End.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, the audience is introduced to “those good and crazy people,” Robert’s married friends, as he weighs the pros and cons of married life. The story follows 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) and Marta (the “peculiar” one), as well as with his married friends. In the end, he realizes being alone is “alone, not alive.”

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum)
