Company to open on Broadway
John Doyle will direct the Stephen Sondheim / George Furth Tony Award-winning musical, Company, on Broadway in November at a theatre to-be-determined.
This new production of Company, which recently premiered at Cincinnati's Playhouse in the Park, continues Mr. Doyle's method of working with actor-musicians seen in the currently running Broadway production of Sweeney Todd.
Company features direction by Mr. Doyle, musical direction and orchestrations by Mary-Mitchell Campbell, set design by David Gallo, costume design by Ann Hould-Ward, and lighting design by Thomas C. Hase.
The original production of Company, directed by Harold Prince, with musical staging by Michael Bennett, opened on Broadway at the Alvin (currently the Neil Simon) Theatre on 26 Apr 1970. The revolutionary musical garnered a record 14 Tony Award nominations, winning five, including Best Musical. The show was last seen on Broadway for a limited engagement in 1995.
Most of the cast of the current Cincinnati production (which closes 14 Apr) are expected to reprise their roles on Broadway.
Confirmed casting and theater to be announced.
