Great Performances: Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” With the New York Philharmonic Friday, 9 p.m., Ch. 2
This bang-up concert staging of one of Sondheim’s greatest achievements is a star-studded affair with Broadway vets (Patti LuPone, Katie Finneran), musically inclined TV stars (Stephen Colbert, Christina Hendricks) and a group of actors who fit both categories (Neil Patrick Harris, Jon Cryer, Martha Plimpton). The musical tells the sometimes funny, sometimes tragic tale of a single man named Bobby (Harris) fielding conflicting relationship advice from his very opinionated, mostly married friends in classic songs including “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Being Alive,” and “Side By Side.”
The LYLAS Friday, 9 p.m., WEtv
Bruno Mars isn’t the only one with talent in the family. Or at least that’s what his sisters Tahiti, Presley, Tiara, and Jaime aim to prove in this reality series that follows his siblings quest for success with their quartet the LYLAS. (All of the siblings have been performing since childhood in Hawaii.) The acronym? Fittingly, it stands for Love Ya Like a Sister.
