The New York Philharmonic's stupendous concert staging of Stephen Sondheim & George Furth's seminal musical comedy COMPANY is now available to view in full on Hulu, just in time for Valentine's Day viewing!
Check out the entire performance here.
Starring Neil Patrick Harris, this star-studded production of one of Sondheim's most loved musicals is Broadway at its best, with one of the most exciting casts ever assembled - Patti LuPone, Stephen Colbert, Christina Hendricks, Anika Noni Rose, Craig Bierko, Katie Finneran, Martha Plimpton, Aaron Lazar and more bring these rich roles to life in Lonny Price's endlessly entertaining production, produced by Ellen Krass, in an unprecedented HD capture, originally released in movie theaters worldwide by Fathom.
COMPANY depicts the 35th birthday party of bachelor/playboy Robert and illustrates his interactions with his sophisticated friends and various romantic partners in circa 1970 New York City. The musical was revolutionary for its non-linear plot, with COMPANY often recognized as the first major concept musical to popularize the form. The original production was directed by Hal Prince with musical staging by Michael Bennett.
COMPANY will also be paid homage to on this week's "I Do" episode of GLEE with the breathless patter of the character number "Getting Married Today", led in the NY Phil production by Finneran.
