Relevant, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting

See it if Really great production of the Sondheim classic. Fantastic staging and talent. Recognizable tunes.

Don't see it if Lenk is beyond her depth here. Singing and acting are embarrassingly lacking. The contrast with the rest of the cast is flagrant.

Also Lenk's sining is mediocre but that could have been offset by great act... Read more Read less

Great staging, Fresh, Great story, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy updated takes on a classic. Feels extremely fresh like it could have been written today. Great story and characters.

Don't see it if I saw it early in previews & felt that Lenk was miscast. Everyone else shined bright around her. Maybe she will improve by opening.

See it if You want to see a truly original take on Sondheim classic. More than a few genius moments sprinkled throughout-spectacularly sung/acted.

Don't see it if If you are a fan of musical theatre I cannot imagine that you would not be pleased with this production.

Great music, Great staging, Snarky, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if Thoroughly entertaining. Snide perspective on peer pressure to marry. Fresh, creative direction & staging. Patty L great. Music great.

Don't see it if You wouldn't enjoy a questioning, darkly humorous view of marriage. You prefer a big spectacle to an artsy performance with physical humor.

Also Each vignette is special. So well done. There is a hilarious extended ... Read more Read less

Fine revival of one of sondheim's most memorable musicals; however making male "bobby" into female "bobbie" & reversing gender of other roles adds little

See it if sophisticated view of ambivalence of marriage; amazingly witty lyrics/book; marvelous sets, scenes inventively restaged; 1st class cast

Don't see it if show about pain of not being married by 35 is somewhat dated; Katrina Lenk as Bobbie/lead, singing/acting struggles in role

Also "Bobby" or "Bobbie" is a tough role 2 play. Some have described it as ... Read more Read less

Disappointing disappointing, Disappointing

See it if You like Sondheim. The performance of Patti Lupone wonderful. The book has been changed...”updated” which some may like.

Don't see it if You saw other productions and liked. Katrina Lenk does not sing well enough for the lead. Staging is strange...boxes moving around.

Also Added scene of Bobbie thinking while in bed with date unnecessary and ... Read more Read less

So many good songs, Cool staging, Funny yet serious, Great singing, Great cast

See it if for Sondheim's score, a top notch supporting cast, andPatti Lupone! I liked the gender-swap. Fun night of theater. Also poignant at times.

Don't see it if not a fan of Sondheim. I expected more from Lenk--whenever she sang she adopted Dina's accent from Band's Visit. Very weird.

Must see, Great staging, Great singing, Clever

See it if you want to see a revival of a classic that is updated but holds true to its original identity. Everyone in the cast is superb!

Don't see it if the idea of the main character being changed to a woman bothers you. Sondheim's lyrics as we all know can get very wordy at points.

Entertaining, Well-acted, Relevant, Slow, Funny

See it if you want to see an imaginative revival of a classic musical focusing on a 35-year-old woman navigating being single.

Don't see it if you want a taut script and a fast-paced show. While entertaining, this is a slow and somewhat repetitive storyline.

Intelligent, Great score, Must see, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you know the play or not. The gender swap works well. Matt Doyle's Jamie is worth the price of admission by itself LuPone is amazing

Don't see it if you are not a fan of the show or are offended by seeing two men kiss

Must see, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Funny

See it if A smart, stylish revival of a classic musical comedy about a single woman and her circle of all married friends. Amazing cast.

Don't see it if You are so attached to the original, you can’t stomach any changes. More a collection of vignettes than a cohesive story.

Also This is the first version of Company I’ve seen. I found it highly ente... Read more Read less

Modern set, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if A wonderful cast in a revival of a 1970 musical, with some swapped genders. Loved the innovative set. Patti's amazing!

Don't see it if You hate when classics are modified or revamped. Feels more like a play than traditional musical. You need a clearly defined plot.

Also I haven't seen Company in any incarnation before. This version is not ... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Dizzying, Indulgent, Overrated, Too much too much too much! enough razzle-dazzle to gag the zeigfeld follies on new year's eve. great music, great songs, & some great moments, but questionable choices like busy, ugly, colorless set design and busy awkward choreography.

See it if you love sondheim, love "company," love patti lupone, and love loud, lively, dazzling musicals.

Don't see it if you loved the concert version of "company" ... this production will disappoint.
