I thought the London "Company" gave a new force to the "skits" that make up the libretto. Yeah, "Barcelona" was a little forced but that aside, the show had a new, surprisingly cumulative effect. Now the idea that time is passing and Bobbie isn't married is pointed by all the babies in the staging. Bobbie has a time lapse as a woman that the character didn't as a man. And esp. "Here's to the Ladies Who Lunch," the last verse, when in this production Patti Lupone turns to Rosalie Craig and sings, "Here's the ladies who watch/Aren't they the best?/ When they get depressed it's a bottle of scotch/ Plus a little jest." And THAT's exactly who Bobbie has been throughout the evening.
