STEPHEN SONDHEIM'S COMPANY: STEPHEN COLBERT
The New York Philharmonic, EMK Productions and Screenvision are proud to present Stephen Sondheim's "Company" in movie theatres across the nation. The production was shot in early April as part of the Philharmonic's spring gala. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) leads an all-star cast which included Patti LuPone, Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report), Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Craig Bierko and Martha Plimpton. 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 girlfriends. It's a concept musical composed of short vignettes linked by a celebration for Bobby's 35th birthday.
