Sondheim fans rejoice. The 5th Avenue Theatre continues its commitment to produce the entire Stephen Sondheim canon. Following on the heels of The 5th Avenue's acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd, this fall the theater delivers Company. This hilarious and affecting portrayal of five married couples, as seen through the eyes of perpetual bachelor Robert, explores the joys and pitfalls of love, commitment and relationships. It features a brilliant, energetic, quintessentially Sondheim score, including the celebrated songs "Side By Side By Side," "Ladies Who Lunch" and "Another Hundred People."
Winner of six 1971 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this landmark show -- considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theater -- remains as relevant and razor-sharp as ever while demonstrating that relationships, while not perfect, go hand-in-hand with "Being Alive."
