Sondheim’s New Lyrics For Female “Company”

Work is well underway for the upcoming gender-bent London production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical Company, and it seems the composer is making considerable alterations to his beloved musical. Director Marianne Elliott tells a reporter that the 88-year old composer has submitted ‘so many’ changes for the modernized take on the 1970 musical that the revival should be termed a ‘new’ musical. Rosalie Craig, who will star as Bobbi in the retooled production, says, “It’s about a woman having a really good time. It’s celebrating – Sex And The City style – a woman going out for lunch, and having a good time. Going out for drinks, and having a good time. Going to bed with gorgeous men and having a good time.”
