First, the libretto to COMPANY was written by George Furth; Sondheim provided the music and lyrics. This is an author attribution flaw that ought to correct.Furth creates as his central character, Bobby, a 30 year old bachelor in the 1970's who flits from meaningless relationship to meaningless relationship and is ostensibly adopted by a group of married friends:obsessive/compulsive Harry & Sarah who use Bobby as a buffer against their own neuroses (hers is eating; his is drinking); Peter a [...]
Company is a musical written by George Furth. George Furth is both a playwright and an actor, and has written plays such as Blazing Saddles, Merrily We Roll Along, and Twigs. As for his television work, he wrote for Love, American Style, I Dream of Jeannie, Green Acres, Happy Days, and many other iconic shows. The show takes place in New York, and is centered on a thirty-five year old bachelor named Bobby. Bobby’s purpose in the show is to have a central character who observes the marriages of [...]
The highlights for me: "The Little Things You Do Together", "Side by Side by Side", "The Ladies Who Lunch", and "Being Alive".In a series of disconnected scenes, each character/couple has a chance to shine in such a way that both highlights the ways in which husbands and wives can differ, and unpacks, in the same heartbeat, what brought each particular couple together in the first place. On the same token, it addresses what one faces when one goes through life without marriage, which--in today's [...]
I thought that the script was way too repetitive. I get that the point is that all marriages are similar and all are different, but I just thought the little snippets were too similar. The “we don’t drink” the bourbon scene wasn’t all that different from the “we don’t really smoke pot scene.” and all of the songs felt so similar. I listened to this for a bit yesterday and realized I had heard 4 songs without ever noticing a transition between them. I thought this didn't really acco [...]
Although "Company" is a phenomenal musical, the libretto itself does leave something to be desired. Definitely something you don't want to sit down and read (I got the script for character work as an actor).
one of my favorite musical scripts/librettos. The comparison of married people not being marriage itself to musicians playing the wrong notes not meaning the music is bad was a major shift in perspective for me
This is my favorite musical. It is probably better to watch this than read it though.
Okay, there's enough BobbyBabble to drive a person crazy, but this show has plenty of great songs and a timeless quality.
This is my favorite Sondheim musical and I'm glad to finally have read its book. It's simply flawless. That is all.
hadn't read this in ages; now it's time to bust out the cast recording (but which one???)
Such a simple plot, such a compelling musical!
Not my favorite.
It's sort of weird at first, but once you adjust to the concept, ""Company"" is an interesting show.
My fav. Sondheim so far!
