Poor Baby

I got my popcorn and headed to see the filmed of the 2011 New York Philharmonics Concert of Company lead by Neil Patrick Harris on the Big Screen and it was amazing! My Favorite production is still the 2006 Broadway revival headed by Raul Esparza. If you have never seen Stephen Sondheim's Company you are missing out. The plot revolves around Bobby, a single man who has never been able to commit to a relationship, and his best ,five married couples. The musical is a match up of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, and all linked by a surprise party for Bobby's 35th birthday.
The cast did an outstanding job bringing this timeless story to the stage. NPH did an amazing job as bobby, full of charm, honestly, and hope. His rendition of Marry Me A Little made me cry. Stephen Colbert and Martha Plimpton played the comical married couple of Harry and Sarah. They stole the show for sure! Anika Noni Rose blew the roof off with her Another Hundred People. Go see this film!!! The run of the film has just been extended, click here for details!!!
