COMPANY follows Bobby, a commitment-phobic 30-something New Yorker, through a musical dissection of love and relationships. Aided by the advice of his five married-couple friends, Bobby juggles the pros and cons of marriage with an endearing skepticism that will have audiences laughing and nodding in recognition. The original Broadway production was nominated for a record-setting 14 Tony Awards and won six, including Best Musical, in 1970.
