On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – "those good and crazy people [his] married friends" – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.
Winner of the 1971 Tony Award for Best Musical
ROBERT The story's protagonist, he is a keen observer who appears happy but holds pain in his heart. He is the only one of his friends still single. Terrified of marriage and fears lifelong loneliness.
SARAH Harry's hypercritical wife. She is an avid learner of karate and tends to overeat. Open, accepting, and full of love.
HARRY Sarah's husband. He is a recovering alcoholic continually falling off the wagon. Believes the advantages of marriage outweigh the disadvantages.
SUSAN A delicate southern belle. Peter's wife and ex-wife. Motherly in her affections towards Robert.
PETER Susan's husband. The perfect husband and ex-husband. He is very liberal in his view of relationships.

DAVID Jenny's husband, he is relaxed and always in control. Believes a man should be married and that the sacrifice of freedom is worth what you get in return.
AMY A frantic neurotic engaged to Paul but terrified of marriage. After a mental breakdown, she finally realizes that Paul is, in fact, her soulmate.
PAUL Amy's fiancé. Mildly clingy, but patient to her neurotic nature. He is fully committed to the idea of marriage and encourages Robert to do the same.
JOANNE Acerbic, demanding, and blunt. Too old to be part of the young crowd, but not old enough to be part of the older crowd. Puts on a brassy front that melts when she is alone with her husband.
