Company with the New York Philharmonic (2011) Rated NR

CompanyA Stephen Sondheim’s musical of five couples and their bachelor friend, who questions marriage. Starring Neil Patrick Harris, Patti LuPone, Martha Plimpton, Anika Noni Rose, Jon Cryer, Christina Hendricks, Stephen Colbert

The musical is based on a book by George Furth with lyrics by Sondheim.   This musical is becoming more and more one of my favorites. Each time a see it I’m more infatuated with the show. It’s a great look at marriage and singles. The cast of this particular show was spectacular. Neil Patrick Harris gives Bobby an empathy and sensitivity. The staging was ideally directed by Lonny Price. If you haven’t watched this musical I highly recommend it or catch the 2006 version that stars Raúl Esparza.
