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.
