Company, with music by Sondheim and book by George Furth, takes place on the night of Bobby’s all-important “30-something” birthday. Bobby, a long confirmed single, contemplates what it means to be alone. Over the course of a series of remembered dinners, drinks and even a wedding, friends explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. Bobby is forced to question “the tick-tock” of what it means to be unmarried. Sondheim’s Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre, and features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of the composer’s best-known songs.
