Not that this really means anything, but just wishful thinking… but the Company revival social media accounts and have website have changed some of the imagery. But hopefully we get more news at some point about a tour, casting, route, etc.

My thought is most likely something to do with the tour as well.

I had the same thought! Looking forward to hearing more information.

Outside of the trap doors, I think this show could easily tour with almost the same set as Broadway (just more collapsible for depending on the wing space). I doubt they’d do the orchestra bit but even that would be doable. 


I am big. It’s the REVIVALS that got small.

Yeah, I don't think they'd remove all the Katrina art if it didn't have a future beyond Katrina. 

I know a lot of things in the Theatre industry are happening until they're not, but it is booked for late Spring 2024 at the Denver Center for the Performing arts. There are so many touring houses across the country that I definitely could've missed it, but I think they're the first place to announce they have it booked.

Wing space is notoriously limited at the Jacobs. Most of the set/letters were flown/stored far upstage when unused on Broadway.

I hope this goes out on a production contract. It would almost guarantee “better” casting. I would love to see Jenn Simard as Joanne on tour, but I can’t see her touring unless it’s on a production contract.

May I ask what is a production contract? What are the other types of contracts? (Sorry if this is a dumb question to ask )

A Production Contract is the highest level of Equity contract. All Broadway shows with the exception of Roundabout and sometimes Lincoln Center at The Beaumont are Production Contract. National tours today are subject to varying levels of contracts. Large and often well-established Broadway shows that put out a tour are typically Production…i.e. The Lion King, Wicked, even Moulin Rouge. Producers keep trying to get their tours on lesser contracts so that they can in turn lower their running costs and try to recoup quicker. If Company does, in fact, go on tour I would think it would be on a lower tier contract a la Waitress. My 2 cents.

Stephen Sondheim's and George Furth's Company, winner of five 2022 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, will launch a North American tour this October, visiting more than 25 cities in the 2023-2024 season.

The North American tour follows the critically acclaimed, sold-out engagement in London's West End, and Tony Award-winning run on Broadway. The most honored musical of the 2021-2022 Broadway season is directed by three-time Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Angels in America).

Producer Chris Harper said, "The extraordinary response to this musical masterpiece, both in London and on Broadway, was exhilarating. We are delighted that audiences across North America will finally have the opportunity to experience Marianne Elliott's Tony Award winning, joyful and laughter-filled production."

The smash hit musical comedy will play at the Fisher Theatre in Detroit (October 17-29, 2023), the Buell Theatre in Denver (May 22 - June 2, 2024) and the Paramount Theatre in Seattle (July 23-28, 2024). Additional tour stops, casting and public on-sale dates will be announced later. Updated On: 1/25/23 at 01:21 PM

We're never the first stop of a tour in Detroit. I'm so excited that we will be for Company! (at least as of this announcement)

Are we sure this is an Equity tour? Work Light Productions is mostly known for non-Equity bus-and-truck tours (with some exceptions).

I can't imagine this sells with a non-equity cast. They really need a Broadway name for Bobby and/or Joanne.


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

I’m not very familiar with tours, but this was in the press release. 
 

“The North American tour of Company is produced by Elliott & Harper Productions, Work Light Productions and Catherine Schreiber”

Would that indicate it’s equity?

I wonder how Elliott's inventive staging in New York will work on tour, especially with all the contraptions involved.


Oh look, a bibu!

Nothing about that indicates that it is an Equity tour, hence why I asked.

There is no such thing as a "Broadway name," especially when it comes to sales around the country. Quality of the performer aside, Nikki Renee Daniels' name sells about as many tickets as a Pace University dropout. These are the realities of the industry.

The press release and social media direct to the Broadway productions website. My experience is that non-equity tours have to have a separate site. Please correct me if I'm incorrect.

To be honest, this "annoucement" is nothing. We already knew the show was playing Denver and Detroit. we also knew the month/years. Not date specific. Seattle just annouced now, so the headline of "COMPANY Sets Dates & Cities For North American Tour Launching October 2023" is almost as bad as when Playbill reposts big news from the previous week on the weekend as if it is brand new news...

Can you tell I'm bitter, because I don't see this coming to my town lol

The specific marketing materials for a non-Equity tour cannot utilize Equity actors (and the website specifies on the pages where Katrina and Patti are featured that it's describing the NY production). There's nothing stopping them from using the same website URL and title treatment.

If you watch IG/Twitter video, it gives a general location pin of many major cities. It will give you some idea.

It also says 25+ more cities/towns so I'd assume it will the standard list where shows typically play. If it is indeed 25 locations, they're promising a 2-year tour, give or take.

Not necessarily. Can't imagine this plays more than a week in most markets aside from big theatre towns - LA, Chicago, etc. Or if there are split-weeks, that shortens it even more.

25 cities in 8-12 months indicates a few cities with a multi week run, and the press release indicates that as well. I have no reason to believe this won’t be equity.
