Following a critically acclaimed sell-out run this August, Stephen Sondheim’'s Marry Me a Little will return to St. James Studio for an extra week of performances from Monday 6 – Saturday 11 October 2014, it was announced today.

Marry Me A Little pieces together a selection of songs by the undisputed master of the contemporary Broadway musical to tell a charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival as a modern singleton. Told entirely through songs written early in Sondheim’s career or previously intended for his ground-breaking Broadway musicals including A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Company, Follies and A Little Night Music, Marry Me a Little is funny, moving and sophisticated musical as well as a fascinating look at "the songs that got away”.

In this new interpretation, the first to be seen on the London stage in 17 years, the show finds two ex-lovers, on separate Saturday nights, alone in the flat they once shared, remembering the highs and lows of their relationship. Each is visited by memories of the other as they remember what made them fall in love, and ultimately what pulled them apart.

Simon Bailey and Laura Pitt-Pulford will turn to the roles of Man and Woman.
