Adrian Lester of the London revival has a quite interesting potrayal of Bobby as well.

Boyd Gaines on the other hand is a waste of time.

I have a DVD copy of the 1996 version of Company with Lester in it! He was in my opinion the best Robbie I've ever seen! I think the 1995-1996 London production of Company was way better than the B'way Revival! It did last longer in London!

Vocxally Lester is better than Gaines but character wise?? He is terrible.. come on Bobby doing lines of coke during Side By Side????

True, a bit much!

All I've heard is that he had health problems, but can anyone offer something more specific?

I have read that he was going through a nasty divorce and the stress of a new New York show was too much for him.
