C is for Company
Updated: Apr 4, 2020
I’m not talking about company in the way you probably thought I was. In the midst of the Covid-19 social distancing era, (which should probably be called physical distancing), your thoughts probably turned to the people-coming-over-for-dinner type of company. That’s not what I’m talking about here, although I’m ready for that kind of interaction.
In keeping with the theme of the blog, I’m talking about the musical comedy by that title. Company. I have a soft spot in my heart for this Stephen Sondheim musical. We did it in college and I’ve loved it ever since, hearing the music makes me happy. If you’re up for listening to some good Broadway music, check out the soundtrack.
And if you’re familiar with the show and wondering who I played, it’s Sarah. Here’s the way her character is described, I’ll let you decide if it was type casting or not:
“Learning karate and has problems with food and dieting, married to Harry.” 😉
Because of the crazy times we’re in right now, choosing the musical Company as my C word seemed only fitting.
🎵 Phone rings, door chimes, in comes company.
No strings, good times, room hums, company Late nights, quick bites, party games,
Deep talks, long walks, telephone calls.
Thoughts shared, souls bared, private names,
All those photos up on the walls—with love. 🎵
