Absolutely a great performance of what must be one of StephenSondheim's favorite creations. From Neil Patrick Harris's wonderfullynatural depiction of Bobby, to Patti LuPone's perfect rendering of "TheLadies who Lunch", this has to be one of the best productions of"Company" extant. Mr. Sondheim's long-time musical director, PaulGemignani conducts the New York Philharmonic orchestra with his usualbrilliance. This superb musical from more than 43 years ago stands asone of the best in musical theater history. I only hope that futureaudiences will be privileged to see "Company" performed as well as itwas performed here on this night at Avery Fisher Hall. To Lonny Priceand this marvelous cast - Thank you.

To me, Sweeney Todd will always be Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece.However, Company still shows a master at work, full of his challengingbut truly inventive music(both in orchestral and vocal) andintelligently clever lyrics. While still demanding for the performers,in a way it is a little more accessible than Sweeney Todd. The story isalso great in Company, it is always very entertaining, with truthfulyet sometimes cynical observations on relationships, but it's also anemotional journey, with complex, deeply flawed and fully fleshedcharacters. This 2011 performance is a wonderful performance in everyway. It looks good and stays true to Sondheim's idea of conceptmusical, and while some of the staging is somewhat minimalist it isvery compelling as well and does a great job at making the charactersand their relationships interesting and relateable. Sondheim's score isas you'd expect from him a powerhouse, it is very difficult to pick outa favourite song as they're all so good though The Ladies Who Lunch andAnother Hundred People are definite contenders. The orchestra playmagnificently throughout, and the conducting keeps things togetherwithout anything noticeable going awry. It was difficult to fault theperformances either. Neil Patrick Harris' Bobby is sensitive and verycharismatic, his rendition of Being Alive is emotionallyheart-breaking. Patti LuPone comes very close to stealing the show withThe Ladies Who Lunch bringing the house down, while her voice isn't themost beautiful it is still thrillingly volcanic and her acting is righton the money. Anika Noni Rose characterises beautifully and her AnotherHundred People is exhilarating. The haunting simplicity of ChristinaHendricks' Barcelona comes through too, Martha Plimpton has a beautifulvoice and is an even better dancer, Kate Finneran is very funny inGetting Married Today and Chryssie Whitehead does Tick Tock so nimblyand so well that you are tempted to join her. All in all, a wonderfulperformance that succeeds hugely in every department. 10/10 Bethany Cox
Just saw it in Herndon, VA; a small but enthusiastic audience.Masterful stage film enhanced by the use of the original orchestrationsfrom the seventies plus an appropriate inclusion of "Marry me alittle". "Getting married today" brings down the house while "Anotherhundred people" received only a warm ovation even though Anika NoniRose performed it brilliantly. Stephen Colbert shines in his section,and Martha Plimpton does wonders as Barbara Barrie did almost 40 yearsago: a great performer like her father Keith Carradine. The realsurprise is Neal Patrick Harris, who even though is too Generation X toplay Robert, does provide insight and credibility to what originallyshould be a shallow character. And Patti LuPone delivers the best "Theladies who lunch" since Elaine Stritch did in 1970!
