In the Kennedy Center revival of Company, Alice Ripley plays Amy, the harried bride who pleads for mercy from the audience as she begins her wedding ceremony in the patter song "Getting Married Today."

Sondheim's tale of a single man (Bobby) and his friendships with five married couples was originally produced on Broadway at the Alvin Theatre in 1970 and featured a book by Furth and such classic Sondheim tunes as "The Little Things You Do Together," "You Could Drive a Person Crazy," "Another Hundred People," "Getting Married Today," "Being Alive" and "The Ladies Who Lunch." At the Kennedy Center, John Barrowman stars as the confused bachelor Robert (Bobby) with award-winning actress Lynn Redgrave as the boozy, jaded Joanne. Company plays through June 29.
