“Phone rings, door chimes, in comes Company!” DePauw Theatre and DePauw’s School of Music present the Tony-awarding winning musical Company, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. 

Perennially single Bobby is pushed toward matrimony by his married friends: long-married Sarah and Harry, about-to-be-married Amy and Paul, about-to-get-divorced Susan and Peter, married-with-kids Jenny and David, and many-times-married Joanne and Larry. Worse, Bobby gets more pressure from girlfriends April, Mara and Kathy, who hope that he will –finally – commit. Called, “diamond sharp, funny and chilling,” this award-winning musical comedy features iconic songs from Stephen Sondheim. Join a stellar cast for Company, a witty and acerbic musical commentary on love – and marriage.

Kurt Weill’s “American” opera paints a slice-of-life portrait of the occupants of a Manhattan East Side tenement on two tumultuous summer days in 1946 as they experience despair, passion and laughter through song, showcasing Weill’s varied musical styles — jazz, opera, show tunes and even Gershwin-styled ideas.
