California Regional Theatre will produce this award winning Musical at the new First Street Theater Feb 4th-20th
Sondheim's game-changing musical is a sophisticated and honest look at modern adult relationships.
From musical theatre's most renowned composer, Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre and the winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book.
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – "those good and crazy people [his] married friends" – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.
"There is nothing fragile about Company... it is by turns brassy, brittle, sympathetic, cynical, romantic, calculating and alive-oh so very much alive. It's been a long time since a musical has come along with so many show-stopping numbers.... Stephen Sondheim's music and lyrics add up to one of the best scores on Broadway currently.... Company is the best musical of the year." -The Wall Street Journal
"Let's hear it for Company, the newest and slickest thing in town. As smooth as the steel-and-glass buildings of midtown Manhattan and as jumpy as an alley cat, it is Broadway's first musical treatment of nerve ends.... George Furth's book is diamond-sharp, funny and chilling both. But Stephen Sondheim's while equally scintillating, shine through time and again with a welcome and essential warmth." – Daily News
