Robert, a 35-year-old single New Yorker, is relatively content with his life and considers his five married couple friends all the “Company” he needs.  His friends disagree, upholding wedded bliss while displaying each of their dysfunctional relationships.  Robert is convinced that “Someone is Waiting,” but amid a reluctance to commit to one of three incompatible girlfriends, he wonders if he will ever find the right woman that makes it worth “Being Alive” in this Tony Award-winning musical.
