COMPANY Wins the Tony for Best Musical Revival
We’ll drink to that! Company has won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical at the 75th Tony Awards. This production beat out the other incredible Best Revival nominees Caroline, or Change and The Music Man. This revival (the fourth to be exact) of Company was directed by Tony winner for direction, Marianne Elliott.
Company is Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical comedy about the search for love (and cocktails) in the Big Apple. This gender-swapped staging presents Broadway’s most iconic bachelor as a bachelorette. It’s Bobbie’s (Katrina Lenk) 35th birthday party, and all her friends are wondering why she isn't married. Elsewhere, Jamie (Matt Doyle) is second-guessing his impending nuptials, Joanne (Patti LuPone) is tired of everyone and everything, and Sarah (Jennifer Simard) really misses brownies.
This revival garnered nine Tony nominations, including Best Sound Design by Ian Dickinson and Autograph, Best Lighting Design by Neil Austin, Best Scenic Design by Bunny Christie, Best Orchestrations by David Cullen, and three performers for their featured roles: Patti Lupone, Jennifer Simard, and Matt Doyle.
Company is currently running at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, and stars Katrina Lenk, Patti Lupone, Terence Archie, Etai Benson, Bobby Conte, Nikki Renée Daniels, Matt Doyle, Claybourne Elder, Christopher Fitzgerald, Greg Hildreth, Manu Narayan, Rashidra Scott, Christopher Sieber, and Jennifer Simard.
