Patti LuPone and Rosalie Craig to star in reimagined production of Sondheim’s Company

Marianne Elliott will direct a new production of Company, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s award-winning musical at the Gielgud Theatre from 26 September 2018 for a limited season.

This production will be ground-breaking with the leading role of Bobby being re-imagined as a woman (Bobbi)! At Bobbi’s 35th birthday party all her friends are wondering why she isn’t married; why she can’t find the right man and why she hasn’t settled down to have a family.

For this production of Company, Rosalie Craig will play Bobbi and Tony and Olivier award-winning Patti LuPone will play Joanne.Company tickets Gielgud Theatre

Marianne Elliott said:  ‘I feel so lucky to be directing this wonderful musical.  I’ve loved it for years.  I really want to make this production contemporary, to explore what it feels like to be a 35 year old sexually confident woman managing friendships and searching for love.  Stephen Sondheim and I have talked a great deal about how this new interpretation might best be executed and I can’t wait to share it with audiences.  I also get to work with the beautiful and talented Rosalie Craig, as well as a hero of mine, Patti LuPone.’

Company will be designed by Bunny Christie and have musical direction by Joel Fram. The producers for Company at the Gielgud Theatre are: Elliott & Harper Productions, Catherine Schreiber, Grove Entertainment, Jujamcyn Theaters, LD Entertainment, David Mirvish, Aged in Wood Productions/Ricardo Hornos, Bob Boyett/Tom Miller, Bruno Wang Productions/Salman Al-Rashid, Across the Pond Theatricals/ Trio Theatricals and Ramin Sabi/Christopher Ketner.
