"Company" is a Tony Award-winning 1970 musical comedy featuring a soaring score by Stephen Sondheim. It tells the story of Robert, a confirmed bachelor who, on the night of his 35th birthday, contemplates his unmarried state. Throughout a series of dinners, drinks—and even a wedding—his friends explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. Robert is forced to question his bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. Director Eli Simon examines how the “Me Decade” launched a generation of young women and men looking for love, sometimes in all the wrong places.
