Phone Rings, Door Chimes, In Comes ...

Company! The Tony Award-winning 2007 revival of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway classic, starring Raúl Esparza as "Bobby baby", will air tomorrow night as part of PBS' Great Performances series.

What set this production apart from previous ones was the unique concept of having all the actors play the musical instruments. Director John Doyle employed the same theatrical conceit for another acclaimed Sondheim revival, Sweeney Todd, the year before.

For video previews, here's the show's title number and Esparza performing its most well known song, "Being Alive", at last year's Tony Awards.
