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