Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by George Furth
FIRST TORONTO PRODUCTION IN ALMOST 30 YEARS!
Company, said by many to have launched the age of the modern musical, centres on Robert, a single man unable to commit to a steady relationship, the married couples who are his best friends, and his three on-again off-again girlfriends.
Set in upper-middle-class Manhattan and told through a series of vignettes in no particular chronological order, each character and scene is linked by the celebration of Bobby’s 35th birthday.
An honest, witty, sophisticated look at relationships, Company is as contemporary and relevant as ever (seen with the recent hit revivals on Broadway and the West End as well as its transfer to movie theatres). It features a brilliant, energetic score containing many of Sondheim’s best-known songs (including "Another Hundred People," "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Being Alive").
This production features 15 premium audience seats on stage at Bobby’s birthday party!
Ticket prices range from $30-$89 and will be available online at canadianstage.com, by phone at 416-368-3110 or in person at the Canadian Stage Box Offices.
