Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” with the New York Philharmonic
Screening of the Live Performance:
June 22 at 7:30 PM and June 23 at 2:00 PM
At the Taos Community Auditorium, 145 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte, Taos

This is latest version of “Company,” Mr. Sondheim and George Furth’s meditation on modern couplehood as seen through the eyes of a lonely bachelor. There were only four live performances with the New York Philharmonic. The producers recruited a star-studded roster, including New Mexico’s own Neil Patrick Harris (of the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”) as the perennially single Robert; television stars like Mr. Colbert, Mr. Cryer, Ms. Plimpton and Christina Hendricks (of “Mad Men”) as his good-and-crazy married friends and gal pals; and Tony winners like Ms. Finneran, Anika Noni Rose and Ms. LuPone as Joanne, the predatory wife who belts out “The Ladies Who Lunch.”
If you are a fan of Sondheim, this performance with it’s star studded cast is one you will not want to miss.
Company's plot revolves around Bobby (a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage), the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girl-friends. It's a concept musical com-posed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by a celebration for Bobby's 35th birthday.
