Starring Tony winners Patti LuPone and Katrina Lenk!
Phone rings, door chimes, in comes... Company! After taking London by storm (and garnering eight Olivier Award nominations) last year, Marianne Elliot's gender-bent production of the Stephen Sondheim classic is now on Broadway! Great White Way legend Patti LuPone reprises her Olivier Award-winning turn as Joanne with Tony winner Katrina Lenk stepping back into the spotlight as the now female Bobbi!
First seen in 1970, Company was like no other Broadway musical of the time, innovating the usual plotlines with a fresh series of vignettes that connect the intersecting lives and relationships of the characters. Songs such as 'Ladies Who Lunch', 'Getting Married Today' and 'Company' showcase Sondheim at his most sublime and manipulative. Originally directed and produced by the late Harold Prince, this 2020 revival will be a gorgeous tribute to the great Broadway director.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
Bobbi, traditionally Robert up till now, is celebrating her 35th birthday in the company of her friends, all of whom are either married or engaged. Through a series of visits with the couples we learn that the well-liked Bobbi has trouble with commitment as evidenced in her numerous affairs, but still hopes to find the right person for her. As each group has its say on Bobbi's singledom and marriage prospects (and state of their own), Company begins to question the old adage that the grass is greener on the other side.

profound REFRESHING Brilliant
It's profoundly refreshing to see Company not just as the famous score and witty one liners, but for it to place itself slap bang in the middle of 2018's debate, whilst still excelling at all the elements one needs for a truly brilliant musical.
In a production that could be dubbed an 'Instagrammer's dream' Company explodes back onto the stage! This time though it's a magical gender-swapped revamp of the classic Sondheim musical.Read full review
