Musical theatre fans are in for a very special treat. Coming to cinemas across Australia on Saturday 31 March and Sunday 1 April is a unique and outstanding production of Stephen Sondheim's Company, one with a brilliant ensemble cast that includes some of the hottest names from American stage and TV circles. Staged by the world-famous New York Philharmonic, Company was recorded live from the Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center, New York in 2011 and is now screening in cinemas outside the US for the first time.

Company's plot revolves around Robert – a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage – the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends. Presented as a series of short vignettes linked by a celebration for Robert's 35th birthday, songs include Being Alive, Side by Side, The Ladies Who Lunch, Getting Married Today and Company.

Headlining the production are (in alphabetical order): Craig Bierko, Stephen Colbert (TV’s The Colbert Report), Jon Cryer (TV’s Two and a Half Men), Katie Finneran, Neil Patrick Harris (TV’s How I Met Your Mother), Christina Hendricks (Drive, TV’s Mad Men), Aaron Lazar, Patti LuPone, Jill Paice, Martha Plimpton, Anika Noni Rose, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Jim Walton and Chryssie Whitehead. The New York Philharmonic is conducted by Sondheim specialist, Paul Gemignani.
