Company is basically about a mid-thirties guy who is trying to find it in himself to commit to marriage. Now personally I don't mind that it's a story about relationships, I love that kind of thing usually, but this one did leave me cold. I have no interest in some whiny bloke who is all 'I can't commit, but I can sleep around with - three! - girlfriends while complaining about it to all my married friends. I just want to slap him and tell him to grow a pair and stop moaning about it. Not to mention, a *whole musical* about this one issue? Please. I was getting bored, and thought a lot of it got quite repetitive. I wanted to see more of the couples, in the end, because several of them were just adorable. Particularly David? and Amy, who I thought were brilliant as the completely ditzy girlfriend and the solid bloke who grounds her.
It doesn't help that I don't even like the music. It's very *clever* as I expect from Sondheim, but I didn't come out humming anything. It's all dissonance and shouting - or that's how it appears to me, although I know my musical tastes are unsophisticated :) Basically, I'm glad I went, as having Rupert dress and undress 3 feet in front of me a couple of times is no hardship at all! But. I'm so glad I don't have to go again.
On that note, it's opening night for Colin in Our Private Life tonight! I really hope I like this play more, as I'm going to see it several times! :) Fingers crossed for all concerned! *excited*
