In 2020, a revival of Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece Company will be opening on Broadway for the third time. As is usual with incarnations of this show, the creative team has assembled a cast chock full of incredible talent.

You finally make it to show week and one of the most exciting final moments; the dress rehearsal. You know your lines, your staging, your props (mostly) and everyone comes together in the theatre to admire the set, the lighting and the innate ability people have to hold it together when things go a bit pear-shaped.

“Joker is a film that wants to challenge audiences, wants to provoke, and wants to be great. Joaquin Phoenix has moments where he is mesmerizing but as compelling as he is there are just as many elements of this film that are problematic or provocative just for the sake of being provocative.”
