An incredible show.
17 January 2012 | by PWNYCNYSee all my reviews

This is an incredible production of a great musical, with snappy songs and an interesting premise. The show has an unconventional plot as a man is trying to sort out all kinds of feelings which are projected onto a number of people who he knows. What the title Compnay implies is a matter of subjective interpretation, but what is evident is the sheer talent of the performers who not only sing and dance and have dialogue, but play musical instruments too. It's a rare show that gives actors the opportunity to showcase such an array of talent. If you are expecting a conventional kind of story, this production may not be for you. But if you watch the show with an open mind, you will be in for a pleasant surprise as the music and story work their magic. Raul Esparza and the rest of the cast are wonderful. They're performances are superb. Congratulations to Stephen Sondheim for his terrific lyrics. This is a video that is well worth watching.
