It’s a painfully familiar social situation — being the third, fifth or 13th wheel in a room full of couples. In Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical “Company,” based on George Furth’s book, 35-year-old Robert finds himself at a party full of married friends who are pressuring him to settle down, as if it’s just that easy. But once he spends some quality time with each couple, he learns that getting hitched might not be the pretty picnic everyone says it is. “‘Company’ is quintessential Stephen Sondheim,” says CenterStage artistic director John R. Leffert. “With Broadway classics from ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ to one of the most moving songs ever written, ‘Being Alive,’ audiences will laugh so hard they will cry.” —Jane Mattingly
