You will notice that most of the reviews for "Company - A Musical Comedy” (or “Steven Sondheim’s Comedy" as its titled on this issue) are for the ‘DVD’. But if you want to upgrade to BLU RAY and you live in the UK - it poses a problem...

'Both' the American original BLU RAY (2008) and its reissue in 2011 as "Company" on Image Entertainment are REGION A LOCKED - so they won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are). And at present (March 2014) there appears to be no European or Region B alternatives.

Until it gets a release on this side of the pond (Region B) - it's another case of Region Coding restrictions denying buffs the BLU RAY they want.

Check your machines capabilities before making an expensve mistake...

Format: DVD
On his 35th birthday, a confirmed bachelor (Neil Patrick Harris) finds himself feted by his friends, five married couples. Reflecting on his mutual friendships with the couples as well as three young ladies, he examines his inability to commit to a relationship and hopefully, a breakthrough that will allow him to commit to that one special person. Barely released in 2011 to a very limited amount of movie theaters, this filmed version of a live performance is probably as close as we'll ever get of a movie of Stephen Sondheim's musical COMPANY. The fragmented concept of a series of vignettes as conceived is such a theatrical piece that of all Sondheim's shows, it proves the most difficult to translate in cinematic terms. Still, if this is all we'll ever get, I'm eternally grateful because it's terrific "film". Though sole writer's credit is given to the original author George Furth, I've seen two professional productions of COMPANY (including the original cast) and I stand to be corrected but Furth's book seems to have been tweaked and honed and for the better. This production is every bit as good as and dare I say it, perhaps better than the original? It was a real pleasure to see Tick Tock restored to its place as most revivals eliminate the dance number. Directed by Lonny Price. Harris is excellent and you couldn't ask for a better ensemble cast: Patti LuPone (who gives a real depth to The Ladies Who Lunch), Martha Plimpton, Jon Cryer, Stephen Colbert, Craig Bierko, Anika Noni Rose, Katie Finneran, Chryssie Whitehead and Christina Hendricks (MAD MEN) who comes as close to stealing the movie as anyone.

Far superior to the "let the actors double as the orchestra and save money" 2008 release.

The region one Image DVD is a pristine anamorphic wide screen (1.85) transfer.

its is so strongly coded that actually my multi-region blu ray player could not play it and I had to return it. Iam very sorry.

Sondheim musical productions in this country are all too rare - so it's a delight to be able to sample this staged concert version which boasts superb performances and production. It rewards playing again and again. I've had it for less than fortnight and have played it 4 times so far - being further enriched with something new with each viewing.

This is a wonderful production, so good you forget it's in concert and not fully staged. A lot of fluidity is brought to the stage by the use of rolling benches. It's extremely well directed and the cast is uniformly brilliant. The orchestra sounds sublime. I saw the original production of Company in 1970 and this new production equals it in every way. Highly recommended.
