Company (Standard Version)
Sondheim’s game-changing musical is a sophisticated and honest look at modern adult relationships.
This version is based on a reworked Broadway orchestration from 2013 for 22 players. There is an available Alternate Orchestration that utilizes 2 keyboard books that have programming so make sure you are ordering the version your organization is doing as we are unable to switch orchestrations once you have placed your order.
There is just a single keyboard book in the Standard orchestration, but as it typical for a Sondheim show, it does require a proficient musical theater player. This show is designed for a stick conductor and would be very difficult to play and conduct a large orchestra from this chair. The programming is very light and is mostly piano with some harpsichord, lute, organ, and tamboura.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state.
