About the show

Broadway legend Patti LuPone and West End leading lady Rosalie Craig star in Company at the Gielgud Theatre.

Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s celebrated musical Company arrives at London’s Gielgud Theatre in a striking modern update. Directed by acclaimed director Marianne Elliott, the musical features Rosalie Craig in the lead role. Broadway star Patti LuPone joins her in the production, alongside actress and presenter Mel Giedroyc.

It’s Bobbi’s 35th birthday. Surrounded by friends, it should be a time to celebrate her achievements. But instead one questions hangs heavy in the air: why isn’t she married? Her friends all think they have the answer, as one piece of speculation leads to another.

For the first time ever, Elliot’s new production casts Bobbi as a woman. In the original Bobby was male. In doing so, it gives the musical a fresh new relevance for a contemporary audience. Bobbi is a confident and accomplished woman. But without being married, those around her still feel her life is incomplete.

Company premiered in 1970. It broke records, earning 14 Tony Awards nominations and winning six. The musical was, in its own way, ground-breaking in the manner it by-passed a typical storyline and instead presented the piece in a collection of short tales. Sondheim’s famous songs for Company include The Ladies Who Lunch, Being Alive and Side By Side.

Rosalie Craig previously won an Evening Standard Theatre Award for her work in The Light Princess. Marianne Elliott also directed that show. She has also starring in City Of Angels at the Donmar Warehouse and London Road at the National Theatre. Before appearing in Company, she stars in hit drama The Ferryman.

Company is Patti LuPone’s first West End appearance in 25 years. She previously created the roles of Fantine in Les Miserables and Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.

Mel Giedroyc, who plays Sarah, is the former presenter of The Great British Bake Off. She previously appeared in London productions of Luce, Eurobeat and The Rocky Horror Show.

Richard Fleeshman, George Blagden, Matthew Seadon-Young, Jonathan Bailey, Alex Gaumond, Daisy Maywood, Ashley Campbell, Richard Henders, Ben Lewis, Jennifer Saayeng and Gavin Spokes also star.

This is the second production from Elliott & Harper Productions, a new West End company established by Marianne Elliott and Chris Harper. It follows on from the success of Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle at Wyndham’s Theatre.

Company runs from 26 September – 22 December 2018 at the Gielgud Theatre.
