Company is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by George Furth. It concerns the relationships between Bobby, a single man who is celebrating his 35th birthday, the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends. Unlike most "book musicals" which follow a clearly delineated plot, Company is a concept musical, comprised of short vignettes in no particular chronological order, all of them tied together with a surprise 35th birthday party. It is often considered the first concept musical.
Company's songs include "The Little Things You Do Together,"
"Sorry-Grateful," "Another Hundred People," "Getting Married Today," "The Ladies Who
Lunch," "Being Alive" and the title song.
