Toronto –– Stephen Sondheim fans can enter Broadway via the big screen when musical Company is presented in high-definition at Cineplex theatres across the country, including Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas, June 15 at 7 p.m. local time.

A special encore presentation will be offered July 9 at 1 p.m. local time.

Backed by the New York Philharmonic, Company stars Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer, Christina Hendricks, Craig Bierko and Broadway legend Patti LuPone.

“Captured live from the Broadway stage in New York City for this limited engagement, Company is a production rich with history that our guests can enjoy in high-definition on the big screen,” said Pat Marshall, vice president of communications and investor relations at Cineplex Entertainment.

“Having the New York Philharmonic back this stellar cast truly makes this production a must-see!”

Originally produced on Broadway in 1970 and produced for cinemas by Ellen M. Krass Productions,  Company is a concept musical composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, that are linked by a 35th birthday celebration for Bobby, a dedicated bachelor.

Unable to fully commit to a steady relationship let alone marriage, Company follows Bobby, his three girlfriends and the five married couples who are his best friends.
