Photo Coverage: Company Opening Night Party

The new revival of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's classic musical Company opened on Broadway on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 W. 47th Street) after beginning previews on October 30th.  The star-studded after-party was held at the Copacabana.

Directed by John Doyle, 2006 Tony Award-winner for his direction of the hit revival of Sweeney Todd, the revival features its Cincinnati Playhouse cast, including star Raul Esparza as Robert, as well as Barbara Walsh as Joanne; Keith Buterbaugh as Harry; Matt Castle as Peter; Robert Cunningham as Paul; Angel Desai as Marta; Kelly Jeanne Grant as Kathy; Kristin Huffman as Sarah; Amy Justman as Susan; Heather Laws as Amy; Leenya Rideout as Jenny; Fred Rose as David; Bruce Sabath as Larry; and Elizabeth Stanley as April.

"Long before 'Sex and the City,' Company took an unconventional look at love and commitment in a complex modern New York.  The show is an honest, funny and sophisticated portrayal of five married couples as seen through the eyes of their mutual friend Robert, a bachelor evaluating the pros and cons of wedded life," state press notes.  The production continues Doyle's method of working with actor-musicians seen in the currently-running Tony-nominated Broadway production of Sweeney Todd.
