Jennifer Simard has shared her talents on New York City's most revered Broadway stages for years, and this season, Simard spends her evenings (and some afternoons) playing Sarah, the brownie-craving, diet-obsessed, workout-focused funny girl in the new gender-swapped revival of Stephen Sondheim's Company.But before making audiences chuckle in her current gig, Simard starred in hit Broadway shows like Hello, Dolly!, Mean Girls, and Disaster!, the last of which earned her a Tony Award nomination...

Company returns to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Broadway. Book Company tickets in New York now.
Following an acclaimed run at the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End under the helm of two-time Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott, this production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's much-loved musical Company transfers to New York City.
This new revival, which took home four out of its nine Olivier Award nominations in 2019 (including 'Best Musical Revival'), made headlines as the first gender-reversed production of Company to have been officially licensed by Stephen Sondheim. The leading male role of Bobby was changed to a leading female role named Bobbie, offering a fresh, new perspective on singledom, love and marriage. A handful of supporting characters were also gender-switched for the revival, including the inclusion of a gay couple by turning the role of Amy into Jamie.
The revival also made waves over the pond due to the fact that Broadway legend and two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone would finally return to a West End musical for the first time since 1993's Sunset Boulevard, ultimately winning an Olivier Award for her efforts. She reprised the role of Joanne (from the popular 2011 New York Philharmonic Concert) and she now reprises the role one more time for Broadway audiences at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Joining Ms. LuPone is Katrina Lenk as leading lady Bobbie. Having wowed critics and audiences alike during the 2017 Broadway premiere of Paula Vogel's Indecent and scooping the Tony Award in 2018 for her stunning performance as Dina in The Band's Visit, Ms. Lenk is a shooting star of the New York stage and this gift of a monumental, gender-switched role is certainly in safe hands.
Company began previews on Mar. 2, 2020, but was forced to close after nine performances. Company will now resume performances from Nov. 15, 2021, with an opening night on Dec. 9, 2021.
Originally premiering on Broadway in 1970, winning six Tony Awards (including 'Best Musical'), this production of Company marks its fourth Broadway revival and perhaps the Sondheim classic has never felt more modern.
Company is finally back where it belongs... on the Broadway stage! And we'll definitely drink to that!

The quintessential musical comedy about the search for love and cocktails in the Big Apple is turned on its head in Elliott’s revelatory staging, in which musical theatre’s most iconic bachelor becomes a bachelorette. At Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, all her friends are wondering why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man? And, why can’t she settle down and have a family? This whip smart musical, given a game-changing makeover for a modern-day Manhattan, features some of Sondheim’s best loved songs, including “Company,” “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side,” and the iconic “Being Alive.”
