Sondheim's breakthrough play.

Review:

Here at last is Furth's libretto to the convention-shattering 1970 musical (revived on Broadway in 1995) that launched composer Sondheim's most fertile period--and his cult. Originally a series of one-act plays about marriage, the musical adds a linking character, Robert, who is the only one without a spouse. In visiting each of a half dozen couples who are his friends, Robert seeks to learn "what do you get" from being married. The answer is far from Hallmark, but visceral. The text includes Furth's witty, cutting dialogue and Sondheim's brilliant lyrics--especially to "Another Hundred People," "Have I Got a Girl for You" and "Being Alive." A portrait of urban angst that is nonetheless hilarious.

From the Back Cover:

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.
