Sondheim. Signature’s Signature.

Fresh from directing the critically-acclaimed production of Sondheim’s Follies on Broadway, Eric Schaeffer brings a new production of the musical comedy Company to Signature – produced here for the first time in 20 years.

On his 35th birthday, Bobby, a commitment-phobic bachelor, searches for the answers to love and life in New York City. While enjoying the company of some lovely ladies, he observes both the joys and pitfalls of marriage from his five quirky couple friends – but is he ready? Only Bobby can find the answer in this witty and piercing examination of matrimony. For how else can you treat marriage, but as a comedy?

Sondheim’s award-winning score includes “Being Alive,” “Side By Side,” “Little Things You Do Together,” “Another Hundred People” and “Ladies Who Lunch.”
