I am so excited Company is returning to Broadway with Patti LuPone who is truly theatre royalty. I have a small block of orchestra tickets for Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 07:00 PM at $280 each. Email me to save your spot!!!
Here comes “Company,” remade for today. With Stephen Sondheim’s blessing, director Marianne Elliott has given the marital musical an incisive gender-flip. Bobby has become Bobbie; bachelor become bachelorette. It brings a 50-year-old show — and its sexual politics — bang up to date.
Seven Tony noms. Two wins. Awards up the yin yang. Every 10 minutes another opening, another show. Two seasons ago, Broadway’s “War Paint.” Now, 40 years after her first Tony for “Evita,” comes “Company.” Opens March. Bernard Jacobs Theatre.
Tony Award® and Grammy Award® winner Katrina Lenk and two-time Tony Award and two-time Grammy Award winner Patti LuPone join forces in Company, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s groundbreaking musical comedy.
It’s Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, and all her friends keep asking, Why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man and isn’t it time to settle down and start a family? As Bobbie searches for answers, she discovers why being single, being married, and being alive in 21st-Century New York could drive a person crazy.
Two-time Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Angels in America) helms this revelatory new production, at once boldly sophisticated, deeply insightful, and downright hilarious. COMPANY features Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning songs You Could Drive a Person Crazy, The Ladies Who Lunch, Side by Side by Side and the iconic Being Alive.
Let’s all drink to that.
