Criterion To Stream ORIGINAL CAST ALBUM: COMPANY Documentary in June

The documentary film Original Cast Album: Company, which follows the original Broadway cast and creative team of the musical into the recording studio, will begin streaming Monday, June 15, on the Criterion Channel.

A description of the documentary reads,"When Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking concept musical Company opened on Broadway in 1970, it was an immediate triumph. Shortly thereafter, the actors, musicians, and Sondheim assembled to record the original cast album in a grueling, nearly nineteen-hour session that tested the talents of all involved - including Elaine Stritch, who pushed herself to the limit to record what would become her iconic version of "The Ladies Who Lunch." With raw immediacy, Pennebaker and his crew document the explosive energy and creative intensity that go into capturing the lightning-in-a-bottle magic of live performance."
