Saw the stunning revival of Stephen Sondheim's "Company" last night.

Karen Prosser saw it about a month ago and raved -- appropriately.

It's a stripped down version with the cast doubling as the orchestra, a la "Sweeney Todd." Seems like Sondheim's work is suited for this treatment -- it really puts a focus on his witty lyrics.

And this show is going to make a Broadway star of Raul Esparza, who plays Bobby (Bubbe).

Bumped into Eartha Kitt during intermission, an extra treat for the evening. Posted by Picasa

I'm so glad you agree with me. Amy just gave me the cd of the original play with Elaine Stritch singing "Here's to the Ladies who Lunch". Can't wait for this cast to release a cd.
