Get to Know COMPANY's Katrina Lenk and Patti LuPone!
Phone rings, door chimes, in comes Company! As BroadwayWorld previously reported, the classic Stephen Sondheim musical Company is returning to Broadway this spring with the show's gender-bent production from London's West End. The show is set to star Katrina Lenk as Bobbie along with Patti LuPone reprising her Oliver Award-winning performance as Joanne. To prepare you to be side by side by side when the show opens, we're getting to know the two stars by looking back at some of their most memorable performances. Check it all out below!
The production, directed by Marianne Elliott, will not be a replica of the version that recently ran in London's West End. It will feature an American cast, and some updates.
