Sondheim revival might follow "Sweeney Todd" to NYC

Playbill.com reports that several top Broadway producers are checking out a new production of Stephen Sondheim's Company in Cincinnati with an eye toward moving the show to the Great White Way. In this new version, director John Doyle has the cast doubling as the orchestra and playing instruments onstage, much as Doyle did with the current hit Broadway revival of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. Even if Company is judged to be Broadway-ready, an inside source says the show wouldn't be mounted until after the Tony Awards cut-off, to keep it from having to compete with Sweeney in the Musical Revival category. The Cincinnati Company, which has sold out its run, stars Rau;l Esparza and Barbara Walsh. (The Advocate)
