Nominated for nine Tony Awards this year, the gender-swapped revival of the late Stephen Sondheim’s breakthrough 1970 musical gets the Great Performances treatment in a documentary following its long path to Broadway. Sondheim, Tony-nominated director Marianne Elliott and co-star Patti LuPone as well as members of the original production’s cast are among those interviewed as the special looks back at how the 1970 show galvanized Broadway during a dark time for the city, echoed by how the reimagined new Company was stalled then emerged triumphantly from the pandemic that shut down all of Broadway just as the show was about to open.
