The Stephen Sondheim-George Furth musical about Robert, a single man unable to fully commit to a steady relationship Produced by Novato Theater Co. Directed by Pat Nims. NTC Playhouse, 5420 Nave Drive, Novato. March 24 – April 16. Fri-Sat 8:00 pm; Sundays 2:00 pm. One preview, March 23 at 7:30 pm. Tickets $12-27 at www.novatotheatercompany.org; (415) 883-4498 for information only. First staged in 1970, Company is a musical comedy based on a book by George Furth with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The original production was nominated for a record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six. For the only time, the Tony Awards for Music and Lyrics were split into two categories. Sondheim won both awards. Its plot revolves around Bobby (a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage), 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 composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by a celebration for Bobby's 35th birthday. Company was among the first musicals to deal with adult themes and relationships. NTC brings together a stellar production team for Company. Director Pat Nims won the Broadway World Best Director Award for NTC’s Fiddler on the Roof, where he worked with choreographer Kate Kenyon. Kenyon herself won a nomination for Best Choreography for NTC’s Dancing at Lughnasa last year. Musical Director Andrew Klein also musical directed the recent NTC production of Into the Woods. He also wrote the original score and was musical director for NTC’s December production of the original A Christmas Carol, the Musical, written by the late Blanca Florido.
