We ate at the Flat Top Grill 1 1/2 blocks west of the theater on Belmont ahead of time. We found street parking midway between Flat Top and 773, and it was free after 6 p.m... it was almost as perfect as on TV!

Description

Set in New York, Sondheim’s groundbreaking musical Company tells the story of five couples and their mutual friend Robert who, at age 35, is reluctant to settle down and get married like the rest of his friends. He’s sure that the perfect girl is waiting for him, and until she makes herself known, he is content to amuse himself with the countless women who come to New York every day. So, he watches and learns from the various couples and sees both the wonders and pitfalls of relationships. In the end though, Robert realizes that while relationships rarely turn out like they do in fairy tales, life is still better when you have someone to share it with.
