New York, 1970. It’s Robert’s 35th birthday. He has good friends, a gorgeous apartment and a girlfriend (or three). But is he happy..?

With an all-star cast and fantastic songs such as The Ladies Who Lunch, Getting Married Today and Being Alive, Sondheim’s Company is a sassy, witty musical about love and friendship.

The Crucible is the main producing venue in the Sheffield Theatres complex. On occasion, the Crucible hosts touring work. The Crucible is also the home of the annual World Snooker Championship.
The performance area is a thrust stage which extends into the auditorium, enabling the audience to watch the action on three sides. No member of the audience is ever further than 22 metres from the stage, and the sightlines are excellent, offering equality of experience across the auditorium.
