Phone rings, door chimes, in comes company! After a critically acclaimed and Olivier-winning bow in London’s West End, the gender-bending new production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Company will begin previews on Broadway March 2, 2020. The Marianne Elliott-helmed revival will officially open at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre March 22, Sondheim’s 90th birthday.
Elliott collaborated with composer Sondheim to re-imagine certain characters as the opposite gender. Bobby’s trio of girlfriends (Marta, Kathy, and April) are now boyfriends PJ, Theo, and Andy; the soon-to-be married (or not) Amy and Paul are now Jamie and Paul. In addition to gender swaps, the production introduces several updates to the lyrics and Furth’s book to bring the story into present day.
