Company is a musical written by George Furth. George Furth is both a playwright and an actor, and has written plays such as Blazing Saddles, Merrily We Roll Along, and Twigs. Stephen Sondheim’s music only enhances all of the content in Furth’s libretto. This is a script that I don’t have any particular issues with, because you learn something new every time you read this script - I re-read each scene at least twice. His most famous scores include (as Stephen Joshua Sondheim is an American musical and film composer and lyricist, winner of an Academy Award, multiple Tony Awards (seven, more than any other composer), multiple Grammy Awards, and a Pulitzer Prize.

com: Company: A Musical Comedy: New York: Random House, 1970. 118 pp. Near fine, in a very good price clipped jacket. Here at last is Furth's libretto to the g 1970 musical (revived on Broadway in 1995) that launched composer Sondheim's most fertile period-and his cult. In visiting each of a half dozen couples who are his friends, Robert seeks to learn "what do you get" from being married. The answer is far from Hallmark, but visceral.

I love this musical so much for my birthday 08/23, I was able to get this including the original cast recording, and soon the authors vocal collection. I actually got the original 1970 version by accident. I originally was gonna get the 1995 version that included marry me a little, excluding tick tock, and other things that most people know from company now, I did always wanted to get myself the original version somehow. When I found out I ordered the original 1970 version I was actually more happy! When I got in the mail, I read through it all and found a lot of differences in them not only in just the songs like tick tock, marry me alittle, and the opening of company, but also big changes in scenes. Also surprise that I had a copy of the original since it does say in the "about the author" bio, it says "Mr. Sondheim is CURRENTLY completing Follies, a show for production in the 1970-1971 season with a libretto by James Goldman." Which surprised me a lot. It's condition was surprisly so good. It only had a pencil marking in the second page but I've erased it and it looks so good. And since my cast recording came in the mail already I smile so much when I put the side by side.... By side.... I will say, I might "sooner or later" (see what I did there?) Eventually I want to get all the cast recording of each revival including the 1994 Broadway revival (Boyd Gaines) [Album color: Pink/white], 1995 Sam Mendes London Production [Album cover: Black] (Adrian Lester), The 2006 John Doyle Broadway production [Album cover:Blue] (Raul Esparza) and if they ever have it somewhere in the world, would looooooooooove to get the 2001 Brazilian Cast recording. Trust me it's so beautiful. Also I'll be honest, I love the 2011 concert but I hated that NPH was Bobby he was not right to be fairly honest. I very much prefer either Dean Jones, Larry Kert or Raul Esparza. I also have The Orignal (West End) London Cast recording with Larry Kert and its magnificent so that why I'm stuck between with either him or the two I just said. 10/10 best book!
Basically I like one on the lines in the play I saw in Sydney Australia ,So I wanted read over the play again and loved it
Nice book. Bought it for a class.
A comedy about marriage, divorce, and relationships, this show has a different structure than most. Sondheim examines Bobby's friends relationships to reflect on Bobby's relationships.
Just what you need if you are in Company, the musical. I purchased it for my daughter who is one of the leads in the show.
I love it. totally happy with this purchase!
Product was exactly what I wanted and got here right on time for the show to start so that I could have my lines memorized
