Stephen Colbert (Harry) and Martha Plimpton (Sarah) play a married couple in Stephen Sondheim’s “Company.” Their demonstration of karate moves becomes comically competitive as a concerned Neil Patrick Harris (Bobby) looks on. Patti LuPone (Joanne) adds commentary to their physical struggle, singing, “The Little Things You Do Together.”
