What do you do when you've got three girlfriends, all your friends are married, and it's your birthday? Find out in Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking musical comedy. It's today in Manhattan, and Robert is unable to make a commitment of his own as he makes the circuit of his married friends, alternately observing and participating in the ups and downs of their relationships. COMPANY features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim's best- known songs. The study of relationships, love and company is put under a microscope during Robert's 35th birthday party. Robert has to consider whether it's best to be single, married or even divorced but living together as his crazy, wedded friends play out every possible example of cohabitation.
