Pre-Hollywood Mendes
13 August 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A filmed performance of the production by Sam Mendes for the Donmar Warehouse, which gives Stephen Sondheim's work an intimacy it deserves. Adrian Lester plays Bobby, the 35-year-old singleton who looks and learns from his married friends.

Amongst the cast, the brilliant Clive Rowe (beautifully voiced on `Sorry-Grateful') and Sophie Thompson, excellent as crazy Amy. Perhaps the best of the lot (apart from Lester, whose oddly broken voice is perfect for `Marry Me a Little' and `Someone is Waiting') is Sheila Gish, as bitter, sarcastic Joanne belting out `The Ladies Who Lunch'.

Company was always one of the strongest Sondheim musicals and this is well-sung, well-acted, and even though a filmed stage play it looks excellent. Perhaps, despite the plaudits for his big movies, this kind of thing is truly where Mendes excels.
