In Good Company
The first of four staged concert performances of the 1970 Stephen Sondheim-George Furth musical Company kicked off at NYC's Avery Fisher Hall Apr. 8.

Anika Noni Rose, Christina Hendricks, and Chryssie Whitehead shine as the three girlfriends of the production's commitment-phobic protagonist Bobby (Neil Patrick Harris).

Patti LuPone, who plays Joanne (Bobby's older friend who hits on him), won raves for her drunken diatribe, “The Ladies Who Lunch.”
In his review, THR's David Rooney says "Plimpton and Colbert make an inspired comedy team; their depiction of marriage as a no-holds-barred contact sport is hilarious."
Mad About You
As a bubbly fight attendant who falls for Bobby (Neil Patrick Harris), Christina Hendricks "has a lovely stage presence and delicious timing," THR's David Rooney says in his review. "Playing dumb with dignity, she gives Bobby’s self-deprecating girlfriend an airy sweetness that recalls Marilyn Monroe."
"Have I Got a Girl for You!"
In one scene, Neil Patrick Harris' character Bobby huddled with his friends - (l. to r.) Jon Cryer, Aaron Lazar, Craig Bierko, Jim Walton and Stephen Colbert - as they tried to find him a romantic match.
I love Martha
