Tony Award winner Katrina Lenk, who will star in the forthcoming gender-bent Broadway revival of Company, will headline the New York Philharmonic’s Celebrating Sondheim New Year’s Eve concert at David Geffen Hall.
Lenk will make her NY Philharmonic debut at the 8 PM concert that will be telecast nationally December 31 on PBS’ Live From Lincoln Center. Lonny Price will direct the New Year’s Eve celebration with Alexander Gemignani in his NY Philharmonic conducting debut.
Celebrating Sondheim will include selections from A Little Night Music, Assassins, Company, Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
A 2018 Tony Award winner for The Band’s Visit, Lenk will play Bobbie in director Marianne Elliott’s gender-reversed production of Company, which transfers to Broadway following its Olivier Award-winning West End premiere. The gender-swapped take on the groundbreaking 1970 concept musical presents the central bachelor Bobby as the female Bobbie.
