Company, first produced in 1970, was acknowledged to be a new model for musical theatre quite unlike the conventional book musical. It is a theatrical montage, which attempts to explore the inner worlds of memory and desire by mobilizing well known musical forms—jazz, lyrical ballads, marches, comic vamps, and patter songs—often in ironic confrontation with the show’s characters and their urbane, witty and ambiguous lyrics. Company won six Tony Awards, and it remains one of Sondheim’s most beloved and most frequently produced works.
