NEW YORK, July 1 (UPI) -- John Doyle's production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's "Company" ended its Broadway run Sunday in New York, but it will get another play on PBS.

"Great Performances," a PBS series that replays shows that have won praise, teamed up with Ellen M. Krass Productions to film the musical, Playbill.com reported Sunday.

"Great Performances" recorded the June 30 matinee performance of the show, starring Raul Esparza, at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

The airdate for the musical on TV has not been announced, but Playbill said when it does air, Esparza and others connected to the show will be eligible for Emmy Awards.

Doyle, who won the Best Direction of a Musical Tony in 2006 for Sondheim's "Sweeney Todd," will next direct "A Catered Affair" -- a new musical by Harvey Fierstein and John Bucchino.
