why you should watch company
Drama Desk and Tony Award-winning playwright George Furth wrote a set of eleven single-act stories for Kim Stanley. When director Anthony Perkins asked Sondheim to read the material, he, alongside producer Harold Prince, felt that the eleven plays could potentially be combined into an excellent musical, centred around the idea of upper-middle class marriages in New York. This version of Company features Tony Award-winning actress Katrina Lenk of The Band’s Visit fame. She will be heading the cast along with Patti LuPone and Matt Doyle. Marianne Elliott, who is well-known for directing Angels in America and War Horse, takes the helm as the director of the 2020 Company revival. The show will open at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on 22 March, in honor of Sondheim’s 90th birthday.
It is Bobby’s 35th birthday, and she has no idea what to wish for as she cuts the birthday cake and blows out the candles. She is plagued by uncertainty; should she find someone and settle down? Her friends constantly bombard her with difficult questions. Why is she not married yet? Isn’t she too late to start a family? Bobby begins attending a series of dinner parties and dates, hoping to learn the pros and cons of marriage. Each vignette is filled with brilliant music and peppered with just the right amount of humour. The show attempts to demonstrate how simply living in a city like New York, married or otherwise, is a frustrating endeavour!
