Stars Join "Company" at the Philharmonic
"Phone rings, door chimes, in come" ... the stars. A production of Stephen Sondheim's Company at the New York Philharmonic has just added a few stars to its roster. Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame will join the cast as April, Jon Cryer (until recently, Charlie Sheen's co-star on Two and a Half Men) will play David, and two time Tony-winner Katie Finneran will play Amy (for those of you who know the show, she's the one who's "Not Getting Married Today"). This announcement adds to the list of stars who were already attached to the production, including Patti LuPone as Joanne, Neil Patrick Harris as the central role of Bobby, Tony-Winner Anika Noni Rose as Marta, and Martha Plimpton as Sarah.
