Updated gender-bender version of the classic Sondheim show made up of vignettes that challenge personal relationships and what they really mean when a poignant 35th Birthday celebration approaches.

Company on Broadway Background

Originally a 1970 Broadway musical comedy by Stephen Sondheim, where the show received fourteen Tony Award nominations, Company was originally entitled Threes, but changed its name after confusion with another show of the same name. Company is a groundbreaking Broadway show that dealt with adult themes, love and relationships. Sondheim plays the ultimate joke on his audience by bringing back the very things from their home that audiences went to the theatre to forget about in the first place. The show has been revived four previous times and the 2019 version of the show will be its fifth revival. This latest version of the show changes the genders of some of the main characters, which creates a more contemporary feel and nuance, in effect challenging the audience to a new set of circumstances and issues of the day.

What’s Company Like?

The updated plot revolves around a happily-single woman, who has no inclination to commit to marriage, despite a large number of potential suitors. Her close friends are five married couples, some gay and some straight. She also has three boyfriends, whom he has a less-than-stellar relationships with, each one bringing their own positive and negative traits. This show is presented in short vignettes, that are in no story order, but serve to give a better view into the protagonists life and thoughts during the often challenging celebration of her 35th birthday.

Is Company Good for Kids?

This show is not very kid friendly with its adult themes, coarse language and depiction of crass stereotypes.
