Company is a musical comedy, with a book written by George Furth, and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The original 1970 production was nominated for a record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Music & Lyrics.

Company's plot revolves around Bobby, a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage. He's surrounded by five married couples who constantly try to keep him busy, with dinners and dates. We also see his interactions with three girlfriends. Unlike most book musicals, which follow a clearly delineated plot, Company is a concept musical composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by a celebration for Bobby's 35th birthday. While interacting with each couple or girlfriend, Bobby is forced to decide what he wants out of life. Does he want to give up everything he has? Does he even have anything worth keeping?

Single and married audience members alike will appreciate the humor and insights throughout this show. For example, this snippet from one song about what makes perfect relationships: "It's not talk of God and the decade ahead that allows you to get through the worst. It's 'I do' and 'you don't' and 'nobody said that' and 'who brought the subject up first?'...It's the little things you do together."
