ABOUT THE SHOW: As we pay tribute to the late theatre genius Stephen Sondheim with this stellar musical whose latest incarnation just won the TONY for best revival. Set in modern upper-crust Manhattan, Company is a funny, sophisticated exploration of love and commitment as seen through the eyes of a charming perpetual bachelor, who on his 35th birthday, questions his single state and his enthusiastically married, slightly envious friends. With a wise and witty Stephen Sondheim score including "Another Hundred People," "Side by Side by Side," "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Being Alive," Company offers creative musical comedy at its finest.
