“A landmark musical, one of those few shows that enter the permanent lore of the theatre by altering the vocabulary of dramatic possibilities.” –Time
“There’s never been a franker, more sophisticated work written for the musical stage.” –San Francisco Examiner
“With a deliberately episodic, painfully accurate book by George Furth and an unforgettable score by Stephen Sondheim, Company is a total reversal of the usual musical comedy format. It is rigorously unsentimental. It has the courage to be both bitter and honest about love and marriage.” –Kevin Kelly, Boston Globe
A breakthrough Broadway musical in 1970, Company remains fresh, acerbic and original today. The musical’s themes—marriage and commitment, friendship and loneliness—and its innovations in form mark it as a landmark of modern American musical theatre.
Company’s 25th anniversary was commemorated by two major revivals: in New York at the Roundabout Theatre Company and in London at the Donmar Warehouse. This edition incorporates all revisions and additions made for these productions.
