In shortest, plainest terms – Company succeeds. John Doyle, his creative team, and a cast of talented actor/musicians have tamed Sondheim’s conceptual monster. In the process, they’ve also found the heart under the angular, steel-and-glass skeleton – and it’s a pleasure to watch. I want to be Raul Esparza when I grow up. Would recommend that as many of you as possible see this, but I will go a step further and say that this is required viewing if your name is Larry Dahlke. Yup, Larry, I’m calling you out! (I feel hardcore now.)
