Trivia / Company

  • All-Star Cast: The Lincoln Center production with the New York Philharmonic sure is, featuring Neil Patrick Harris as Bobby, Patti LuPone as Joanne, Stephen Colbert as Harry, Anika Noni Rose as Marta, Christina Hendricks as April, Jon Cryer as David, Katie Finneran as Amy, Aaron Lazar as Paul, and Craig Bierko as Peter.
  • The Cast Showoff: In the original production, Another Hundred People was written specifically for Pamela Myers for the role of Marta, a lengthy song for a relatively minor character. The dance sequence Tick-Tock was created by choreographer Michael Bennett for his future wife Donna McKechnie, the original Kathy; the number is frequently cut or abridged in subsequent productions. In the recent Lincoln Center production, Neil Patrick Harris performs a few magic tricks during one of the musical numbers.
  • Cut Song: Happily Ever After, Marry Me A Little and Multitude Of Amys, although Marry Me A Little was put back into the show as the act I finale. Tick-Tock is also frequently left out of productions, although it was included in the 2011 concert staging.
  • Mid-Development Medium Shift: It was originally written by George Furth as a cycle of eleven short plays.
