On the eve of Bobby's 35th birthday, the bachelor celebrates his special day in the company of his married friends. Through a series of vignettes, each featuring Bobby during dinners, drinks, a wedding or a first date- the perpetual bachelor is uncertain if he should simply be happy with his company of friends, or whether he should consider for his own romantic companion. Stephen Sondheim's Broadway classic- COMPANY is a musical comedy that explores a period of "self-discovery" and what it truly means to be in a relationship.
Set in New York City during the 70's- the design of this production pays tribute to the grit and edge in the personality of the city and the people who inhabit it.
