VIDEO: Jennifer Simard Talks COMPANY, Sondheim & More on Backstage with Richard Ridge

Simard currently stars as Sarah in Company on Broadway.

Audiences at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre are rolling in the aisles eight times a week, partly because of the brilliant performance by the always hysterical Jennifer Simard. "[Company] is such a salve every night. It's therapy and fun. We laugh every night," Simard recently explained to BroadwayWorld. "I hope people come to see it and laugh too, because it's a bit of a cathartic release after everything we went through [in the past two years]."

Simard is a Tony Award, four-time Drama Desk Award, three-time Drama League Award and Lucille Lortel Award nominee. Broadway credits include: Mean Girls (Adult Woman); Disaster! (Sister Mary Downey, Tony nomination); Hello, Dolly! (Ernestina); The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (opposite Mo Rocca); and the companies of Sister Act and Shrek the Musical. Off-Broadway credits include the original companies of Forbidden Broadway: SVU; The Thing About Men; and I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change. Film credits include The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, Wish You Were Dead and Sisters. Television credits include: "The Good Wife," "Law & Order," "Law & Order: SVU," "The King of Queens", and "Younger."

Below, watch as he chats with BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge about taking on the character of Sarah, the honor of starring in a Sondheim musical, and so much more!
