This Company revival features a woman in the central role of Bobbie, a 35-year-old singleton whose coupled friends want to pair her off on the occasion of her 35th birthday. Although Company is a quintessential New York musical, this production originated in London’s West End, featuring Patti LuPone in an Olivier Award-winning performance. Patti LuPone returns to her role as Joanne, who sings the epic 11 o’clock number “The Ladies Who Lunch,” in the Broadway production.
In the Company musical, Bobbie explores a series of relationships with three suitors, while her friends continually encourage her to settle down. While the plot remains entirely the same with the lead’s gender switch, many critics and reporters have commented that by placing a woman in the center of the story and setting it in modern times, the urgency increases as biological clocks and societal pressure don’t hold the same weight for men.
Company originally premiered on Broadway in 1970, and the musical features several Sondheim standards including “Being Alive,” “Someone Is Waiting,” “Marry Me a Little,” and “Another Hundred People.” Actors including Adrian Lester, Raúl Esparza, Neil Patrick Harris, and more have played Bobby, and Rosalie Craig originated the female version of the role in London. Company Broadway tickets are available now.
