Anika Noni Rose (Marta) performs “Another Hundred People” in Stephen Sondheim’s “Company.” Jill Paice (Susan) has just told Neil Patrick Harris (Bobby), “I think there’s a time to come to New York, and a time to leave.” The song about the throngs of people coming and going in New York City, and the connections between them, is performed with the New York Philharmonic in a staged concert setting of the musical, along with an all-star cast.
