Theater Roundup: In Comes 'Company', 'Moulin Rouge' OBCR and more


The West End revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical Company has been rumoured for a Broadway transfer for months and months - maybe even years? - and now it is finally happening. The revival is set to begin previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater on March 2nd, and open on March 22nd, which is Stephen Sondheim's 90th birthday. Katrina Lenk (The Band's Visit) will star as Bobbie, a single woman about to turn 35 in a world full of couples, and Patti LuPone will star as Joanne, one of her friends. Typically the role of Bobby is played by a man, but director Marianne Elliott (Angels in America) has a vision for the show that speaks to a large audience about being a woman today. The West End version starred Rosalie Craig and Ms. LuPone, and Ms. Elliott insists that the Broadway version will not be a carbon copy of that production.

MCC Theater has announced the cast for its new play Seared, by Theresa Rebeck, which begins performances on October 3rd and opens October 28th. The cast includes W. Tré Davis, David Mason, Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening), and Raúl Esparza, the Tony-winning actor who starred in the last Broadway revival of Company.





The Lehman Trilogy, which recently wrapped up its run on the West End, is going to the Nederlander Theatre this fall. Full cast and dates TBA.





The Moulin Rouge! The Musical cast recording is out today. The show stars Aaron Tveit and Karen Olivo, and is currently playing at the Al Hirschfeld Theater. Here's their rendition of "El Tango De Roxanne".







While Jonathan Groff is out of the upcoming Off-Broadway Little Shop of Horrors for a couple of weeks in November, Broadway veteran Gideon Glick will be filling in as Seymour. The run is almost entirely sold out, so if you were thinking about getting tickets, now's the time.
