In comes Company — again. Marianne Elliott’s revival of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s revered 1970 musical will resume previews on Dec. 20 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre ahead of a Jan. 9, 2022 opening night, its producers announced today.
Katrina Lenk (The Band’s Visit ) returns to the production as Bobbie, a role traditionally performed by a man, who has no emotional commitments and reassesses life on her 35th birthday. It was to open on March 22, 2020, Sondheim’s 90th birthday.
Instead, the revival was shuttered after nine previews along with the rest of Broadway, on March 12. Patti LuPone plays Joanne and sings “The Ladies Who Lunch,” a song made famous by Elaine Stritch. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
Also this morning, producers of the new musical Mrs. Doubtfire, which had three previews in March, said it would resume on Oct. 21 ahead of a Dec. 5 opening. And the 2017 musical Come From Away will return on Sept. 21. Last week, Phantom of the Opera , Six and Chicago announced details of their return.
