Company, Gielgud Theatre - ★★★★★ - Until March 30, 2019


We were among those who were apprehensive about the updating of this classic. Wrong! It is, if anything, even better. The female, Bobbi, brilliantly played by Rosalie Craig completely resonates. Terrific singing and a sense of character that rings totally true. Patti Lupone is a great Joanne, but the show is stolen by Jonathan Bailey as Jamie. His “I’m not getting married today” actually re-invents a song that belonged to Beth Howland from the 1970 production. The set for that piece was particularly hilarious and brilliant, but all the staging was excellent. The choreography was as clever and understated as the character development. But, in the end, it is all about Sondheim. His subtle exploration of human relationships remains timeless, transcending gender and an expanded definition of marriage.
