Is marriage the answer? If so, what was the question?
The kaleidoscope of sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark show, considered by many to be the first modern musical. Bobby is celebrating his 35th birthday surrounded by married couples. His friends are trying to convince him to settle down and get married, but he enjoys the company of a parade of eligible ladies too much to consider marriage. As Bobby explores the relationships of his “couple” friends, he considers their problems but also ponders the value of commitment. Is he ready to take the big step? Only Bobby can find the answer in this witty and honest examination of matrimony. The brilliant energetic score contains many of Stephen Sondheim's best-known songs, including “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “Side by Side by Side,” and “Being Alive.”
