We SO wish we could be there for this! What an incredible cast!
Between April 7-9, Company will be playing for the New York Philharmonic with a wonderful cast including Neil Patrick Harris, Patti LuPone, Anika Noni Rose, Martha Plimpton, AND Stephen Colbert!
The musical concert is being directed/produced by Lonny Price, who directed last season's SONDHEIM: The Birthday Concert!, and it's being conducted by "Sondheim specialist" Paul Gemignani.
The musical's NY-based story "follows five married, once-married, and soon-to-be-married couples and their mutual friend, Robert (NPH), a bachelor who has been unable to connect in a long-term relationship."
The show has an award-winning history on Broadway, and was most recently revived at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in 2006.
Stephen Colbert and NPH sharing the stage??? We'd LOVE to see that!!!
