“Company” is a very famous book written by George Furth and Stephen Sondheim composed the music and lyrics for Company. It holds a record-breaking history of receiving 14 Tony Awards nominations out of which it won 6 awards for its production.
The revised screening period for Marianne Elliott’s reinvented performance of the Stephen Sondheim/George Furth musical Company, starring Katrina Lenk and Patti LuPone, has been scheduled for Monday, Nov. 15. The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre’s formal opening date has been moved to Thursday, Dec. 9, a month sooner than initially scheduled.
Producers recently announced that virtually the entire group will return from the programme’s shutdown-interrupted production in March 2020. Executives have indicated that a restoration for original showrunner Kyle Dean Massey will be named in the coming weeks. (Massey revealed last month that he will not be returning to the program, opting to stay on the West Coast with his spouse Taylor Frey as they prepare to welcome their first child this autumn.)
Matt Doyle will play Jamie, Christopher Fitzgerald will play David, Christopher Sieber will play Harry, Jennifer Simard will play Sarah, Terence Archie will play Larry, Etai Benson will play Paul, Nikki Renée Daniels will play Jenny, Claybourne Elder will play Andy, Greg Hildreth will play Peter, Rashidra Scott will play Susan, and Bobby Conte Thornton will play P.J.
Words By Directors & Producers
According to the director Elliott, they decided to originally bring Company back as quickly as possible and when they were given the chance to start the performances a month in advance, they knew that they have got a chance to be back on stage. This show has always been about connecting things together to engage in laughter, joy, and camaraderie, and he is overjoyed that they will be able to do it with practically the whole cast.
According to Chris, there were already 135 people who were working on the musical stage of Company when the suspension occurred. The producers realized that the audience and the people working are all dependent on them to bring the interesting and fascinating program back as quickly as possible so this became a great source of inspiration for them to bring it back. It was a no-brainer when the itineraries of many key creative members of the team provided an opportunity. The producers took the work onto them to complete it. They even realized that the production has been lacking in one thing — company – so it’s even better to be back on Broadway so soon.
