The search for love and cocktails is turned on its head, as Patti Lupone leads a newly reimagined revival of Steven Sondheim’s musical, Company. Previously, the story’s main character has been played as a man unsure of what he wants in life. True love seems to pale in comparison to bachelorhood, freedom, fun and the “company” of his good friends.
In a timely twist relevant for today, the lead character of Company is now a woman, surrounded by a “company” of married friends and potential suitors. As she celebrates her 35th birthday, they show her the ups and downs of married and single life, leading her to learn more about each of them and herself along the way. Often funny and poignant, sometimes eerily familiar, Company is a story that resonates today.
Stage legend Patti Lupone once again stars as Joanne, an iconic role she has made her own once at Lincoln Center, for a critically acclaimed run in London and now, for the third time here on Broadway. Composer Steven Sondheim is Broadway royalty, winning a Pulitzer Prize and 13 Tony Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award. Join us to witness how the story of this exciting, new revival is just as imporant today as when it won two Tony Awards during its debut in 1971.
