Review Roundup: COMPANY at Bucks County Playhouse Starring Justin Guarini

Justin Guarini - the breakout star of AMERICAN IDOL and several Broadway musicals and plays - returns to Bucks County Playhouse as Bobby in COMPANY, May 29-June 21. Check out what the critics had to say:

David Anthony Fox, City Paper: "The production at Bucks County Playhouse for the most part pulls it off masterfully, and with high style. That they've managed it with a two-week rehearsal period is astonishing. I give a lot of credit to director Hunter Foster (himself an accomplished musical theatre performer). It's a production filled with ideas - I don't agree with all of them, but what's remarkable is how much of show - especially the acting - is nuanced and full of inner life. Listening to Company, I'm always dazzled by Sondheim's lyrics - but here, I also really noticed how specifically they reflect character and situation."

Wendy Rosenfield, This production succeeds in many ways, with a strong cast that can rattle the rafters and charm each row. Guarini and Candy Buckley's Joanne, a tall, tough-as-nails copperhead clad in leather and python, who's also an auditory match for Stritch, excel in the former, and Kate Weatherhead's Amy, zipping neurotically through "Not Getting Married," achieves the latter.
