Originally entitled Threes, Company revolves around Bobby (a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage), the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends.
Unlike most book musicals, which follow a clearly determined 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.

John Huckle - NODA
This is one of the more accessible Sondheim pieces depicting the interaction between a New York bachelor and his various married friends. The show is extremely well written with an interesting structure and good songs. The company performed to a very high standard and delivered a show to be proud of. It was one of the best evenings entertainment that I have had. The challenges of this piece are to convey the variety of characters and to deliver the complex songs. The story revolves around ‘Bobby’ the quintessential NY bachelor who enjoys the company of various girlfriends and married couples; none of who give him clear endorsement or encouragement to choose marriage.
