Sondheim's tale of a single man (Bobby) and his friendships with five married couples was originally produced on Broadway at the Alvin Theatre in 1970 and featured a book by Furth and such classic Sondheim tunes as "The Little Things You Do Together," "You Could Drive a Person Crazy," "Another Hundred People," "Getting Married Today," "Being Alive" and "The Ladies Who Lunch." At the Kennedy Center, John Barrowman stars as the confused bachelor Robert (Bobby) with award-winning actress Lynn Redgrave as the boozy, jaded Joanne. Company plays through June 29.
