Remember when I raved about the Broadway revival of Company last year? PBS is airing a recording of it tonight. The production was directed by John Doyle, and he used the same conceit of actors doubling as orchestra that he employed with the Sweeney Todd revival a few years ago. Reviews were mixed, but I was enthralled. You'll never please everyone, so why even try? For me, this one is ALL ABOUT the songs anyway, so go ahead and dispense with the sets. Of course it may all fall apart on a small screen without the THEATER atmosphere. I'll be tuned in to see. Or my TiVo will, anyway.
ADDED: Speaking of Sondheim, I'd love to see the London revival of Sunday in the Park with George, now transplanted to Broadway for a limited run. I think it ends in May, which doesn't leave much time. Rats!
