Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends, and begins to make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood. Company, Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at relationships, vulnerability, and “being alive.”

Featured Gnomies: Mert Dilek ’18, Sarah Switzer, Cami Arboles ’20, Emma Levine ’20, ECR Chen ’20, Linday Daugherty ‘21, Tully Goldrick ‘21
“My dad and I both grew up in the same small Pennsylvania town, and he was gay, and I was gay, and he killed himself, and I… became a lesbian cartoonist.”
Fun Home tells the story of Alison at three different ages, as she grapples with memories of her charismatic, explosive father and comes to terms with her sexuality. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel memoir by Alison Bechdel, Fun Home is also the winner of 5 Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and one of the only Broadway musicals to feature a lesbian protagonist. Hilarious, heart-wrenching, and ultimately hopeful, Fun Home is a new musical theater masterpiece.
See them perform: March 1, 2, and 3 at 8:00pm and Feb 3 at 2:00pm in the Off-Broadway Theater
