Londoners can brag that they got the first look at an acclaimed new revival of Stephen Sondheim’s landmark musical Company. But New Yorkers get to see it with Tony winner Katrina Lenk (The Band’s Visit) in the gender-flipped lead role of Bobbie, a single woman in her 30s whose married friends are growing increasingly impatient over her refusal to commit to a long-term relationship. Lenk stars opposite Tony and Grammy winner Patti LuPone, who won raves in London. The cast also includes Chris Sieber and Jennifer Simard. Marianne Elliott (Angels in America) directs.
