“Company” concert starring Neil Patrick Harris, Patti LuPone and others will get a DVD release

“It will for sure happen,” director Lonny Price confirmed.

Price said negotiations are currently underway but a timeline for the DVD release has not been set.

It was back in April that an all-star cast joined the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center for four concert performances of the classic Stephen Sondheim musical.

The musical is about a 35-year-old bachelor named Bobby (played by Harris) and the “good and crazy people” who are his married friends. The all-star cast includes LuPone who sings the boozy show-stopping Ladies Who Lunch number, Colbert, Jon Cryer, Christina Hendricks, Martha Plimpton, Anika Noni Rose and Aaron Lazar.

The production had a very limited theatrical release in June – so limited that I was not able to see it – so a DVD is most welcome! Once a release date is set, you can be sure I’ll let you know!

  1. Greg, I could have SWORN I read where you got to see the theatrical release; I was surprised to read that you didn’t. I didn’t think I’d get the chance to see it, but lo and behold it was shown once a day for a week at one of the big multi-plexes here (ABQ). I caught one show and it was great! So glad to hear it will be on DVD — hopefully soon! It really is a great production with an amazing cast, many of whom I didn’t even know could sing! (Everyone has great stage presence.)

    I saw it live last April at Avery Fisher Hall in NYC. I want to buy the DVD when it comes out. Patti LuPone and Aniki Noni Rose are excellent. Please let us know as soon as it becomes available.
