Shame for Rosalie- this could've been her BIG break, but no doubt she was asked. She built the production from the first workshop to the final night. It seems Marianne and Rosalie have quite a close bond. She has a young daughter and family here, it's a big move!!
Exactly. I can think of a lot of reasons why someone might hesitate to uproot their child for a period of at least several months. I can also, come to that, think of a number of reasons why someone might, right now, hesitate to spend several months to a year in the US. I know a number of people who have crossed the US off their travel plans for the foreseeable future.
Lenk is an interesting choice. I'd like to see what she does with it.
They are missing out on Broadway! Glad we got to see her play Bobbie in London, and that we all have the recording of it =)
Do you remember when the logo for Company first appeared, many of us all commented that they'd missed a trick by not highlighting the neon NY in compaNY. Well now they have and turned the Y into a cocktail glass for good measure. I wonder if they were deliberately keeping that back or maybe they might have read our comments.

I read that they are going to make some changes but having just watched this promo video of London footage mixed with studio footage of Lenk arsing about with balloons Im concerned that they're going to change the dynamic of Bobbie too much. I get that they have to adapt the characters somewhat for the American audience but it looks at this initial stage like Lenk is going to play Bobbie as a bit of a hussy - for want of a better word - which is the opposite of how Bobbie was generally portrayed in London. I think Bobbie works best as someone lost, having to date around to try find the right person, exploring options, in an innocent way. Lenk looks like she's taking the 'empowered' thing too far. And all these balloons in the promo materials make me think they're going to fiddle too much with it, adding too many bells and whistles. The success of the London production was in it's simplicity and refined nature allowing the material to really make it's statement.
