Commentaires : Frequently billed as 'the first concept musical' Company follows Bobby a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship or marriage. The show begins on his 35th birthday where we see his interactions with his best friends, five married couples and three girlfriends. The musical explores his relationships through a series of short vignettes, breaking the traditional mould of a book musical. The show was successful as it represented adult themes and reflected back the lives of New Yorkers in a way that hadn't previously been seen in commercial musical theatre.
There have been frequent attempts to stage gender-reversed and queer productions of Company, but this new production is the first to have been officially licensed by Sondheim, who has agreed to changes in the text. It is unclear at this stage how much of the musical will be changed and exactly which characters will be switched, but it will certainly offer a modern perspective on love and marriage, rather than the 1970s style that is usually attempted.
