Being Alive - Company OBC, 1970 - Dean Jones

Disney film star Dean Jones ("Love Bug")gave a brilliant performance of "Being Alive" in Sondheim's 1970 original production of "Company." Then two weeks into the run, he dropped out due to marital problems. Jones was replaced by Larry Kert, famous for originating the role of Tony in "West Side Story." Kert received a "Best Actor" nomination for "Company" and his performance of "Being Alive" was added as a bonus track to the cast album when it was reissued in 1998. This excerpt is from the highly recommended Region 1 DVD "Company: Original Cast Album" of the 1970 recording session.
