"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 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 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 Sondheim's best-known songs (including
"Another Hundred People," "The Ladies Who Lunch"
and "Being Alive"). – MTI
