A lot of people who I have talked to have said that Compnay would not work/would make a bad film, but I disagree. I actually think it would be wonderfully on screen. What do y'all think? What would you change and how would you present certain songs/scenes.

Bobby would have to have a big appartment for the birthday songs.

Company is so episodic in nature, so the biggest hurdle would be the script and direction, both are what could make or break it.

That's true, so perhaps it would work better as a miniseries then! :wink:
