“Company” follows Bobby, a commitment-phobic 35-year-old New Yorker through a musical dissection of love and relationships. Aided by the advice of his five married-couple friends, Bobby juggles the pros and cons of marriage with an endearing skepticism that will have audiences laughing and nodding in recognition.
