Sondheim’s “Company”: Bobby’s Finally Gay

Bobby Steggert (pictured), currently in “Big Fish” on Broadway, disclosed that he is working on a new version of “Company” at New York’s Roundabout, where the lead character of Bobby is a gay guy and all the couples are gender-reversed. But Bobby won’t be playing Bobby-Baby-Bobby-Love. He’s doing the role created by Donna McKechnie (Kathy) and Michael Urie, from “Buyer and Cellar,” is playing one of the other “girlfriends” (now boyfriends). And he heard the Elaine Stritch part is going to be played by Nathan Lane. Oh, brave new world!
