  1. Bobby is such a passive protagonist in Company. Including “Marry Me a Little” as the Act I finale gives him some much needed depth and shows he does have an arc–from someone with ambiguous feelings about marriage to someone who sort of wants to get married as long as he doesn’t have to give up much to someone who knows that’s impossible but marriage, for all its problems, is better than being alone. Having “Marry Me a Little” at the midpoint grounds his arc.

  2. It’s crazy that Sondheim didn’t think the song fit at first! It’s probably the third best song in an outstanding musical and it took 25 years to get in there!
