Tennessee Repertory closes its 29th season of live, professional theatre with Stephen Sondheim's multiple Tony Award-winning musical Company. Company runs March 22 - April 12 at TPAC's Johnson Theater (with preview performances March 20 - 21).
The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore the landmark musical Company, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. On his 35th birthday, Bobby-a commitment-phobic bachelor-searches for the answers to love and life in New York City.
