Days after
winning Tony, Company announces its close

Days after winning the 2007 Tony award for Best Revival, the producers of Company have announced that the production, directed by John Doyle, will close on July 1.

Upon closing Company will have played 34 previews and 247 regular performances at the Ethel Barrymore Theater. Opening night was November 29, 2006.

Doyle's reproduction of the Stephen Sondheim and George Furth 1970 classic continued the tradition of having the actors double as the musical's orchestra. In spite of critical acclaim, punctuated by the Tony award, Company has struggled in the box office throughout its stay on Broadway. According to, recent shows have played to under 50% of capacity.

The show follows five married couples as seen through the eyes of their mutual friend Bobby, a conflicted bachelor weighing the pros and cons of marriage. The original production earned six Tony awards, including Best Musical, in 1970. (The Advocate)
