Company

  1. 1. “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. COMPANY follows our anti-hero bachelor Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl whos 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 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 Sondheims best-known songs (including "Another Hundred People," "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Being Alive").”

  4. 4.  Can range from simple to complex. The main character has to be able to visit the various couple, so “homes” must be distinguished. In other words, this show could feature: • A giant house with various rooms for the couple • Almost no set which relies on lighting to distinguish • Anything in between
