ABOUT:

PHONE RINGS, DOOR CHIMES, IN COMES COMPANY.

Winner of five Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical, COMPANY “strikes like a lightning bolt. It’s brilliantly conceived and funny as hell” (Variety). Helmed by three-time Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Angels in America), this revelatory new production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s groundbreaking musical comedy is boldly sophisticated, deeply insightful and downright hilarious.

It’s Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, and all her friends keep asking, “Why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man and isn’t it time to settle down and start a family?” As Bobbie searches for answers, she discovers why being single, being married and being alive in the 21st century could drive a person crazy.

COMPANY features Sondheim’s award-winning songs “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side by Side” and the iconic “Being Alive.” Let’s all drink to that!

Recommended for ages 14 and up.

What the Constitution Means to Me

02/24/2024 2:00 pm

Fifteen year-old Heidi earned her college tuition and a deep love of the Constitution by winning debate competitions around the country. All grown-up, she hilariously reimagines how this living document served four generations of women and what it will mean for the future of America. A Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee, this bold, optimistic new play was hailed by The New York Times as “not just the best play to open on Broadway so far this season, but also the most important.”

“Endearingly funny and deeply affecting, it would be hard to identify a work for the theater with its finger more on the pulse of American right now.” – The Washington Post

“Uproariously funny, wrenchingly moving, critically challenging, and politically inspiring.” – The New York Review of Books
