Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in United States
Company



Company: by Stephen Sondheim
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Barrymore Theatre  •  Ongoing
 

Director John Doyle's production of the Stephen Sondheim-George Furth musical Company.

The musical is a revolutionary, unconventional look at love and commitment in a complex modern world. Company is a remarkably honest, clever and sophisticated portrayal of five married couples as seen through the eyes of their mutual friend Robert, a bachelor weighing the pros and cons of wedded life. A comic and touching tale exploring not only fear and longing but also the simple joys of being alive. This production is a bold reinvention of the show in which the actors sing, dance, and play all of the musical instruments. Sondheim's includes "Being Alive," "You Could Drive a Person Crazy," "Another Hundred People" and "The Ladies Who Lunch."

Company forged a new form of musical theater and began the so-called Sondheim era when it opened in 1970. To a greater extent than ever before, its songs revealed character in a manner that was highly personal, self-analytical, and real-but-funny. Sondheim won his first Tony Award, with the show taking additional Tonys for best musical and for George Furth’s book.
