Saturday April 6th

Sometimes people ask why bother reviving a musical if you are not going to do something different with it. Well in the case of the 2018 London revival of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Company, they really did do something different. This newly-revised, re-imagined gender-swapped version of the Sondheim musical saw the lead Bobby played by a woman as opposed to a man, the excellent Rosalie Craig. The character's three girlfriends (Marta, Kathy, and April) were changed to boyfriends (PJ, Theo, and Andy). Newlyweds Amy and Paul became the newlywed gay couple Jamie and Paul. Did it work? Aedín checks out this new cast recording this afternoon. Aedín also talks to Killarney actor Jessie Buckley who shines in the role of  Rose-Lynn Harlan, a brazen young ne’er-do-well from Glasgow who is fixated on going to Nashville to become a country singer in the film Wild Rose.
