This revival of The Baker’s Wife starts previews on 6 July, opening at the Menier Chocolate Factory on 7 July and running through to 14 September 2024.

The arrival of a new Baker and his younger wife turns a provincial French village upside down in this cult classic musica.

Based on the film La Femme du Boulanger by Marcel Pagnol and Jean Giono, The Baker’s Wife is filled with some of Schwartz’s most ravishingly beautiful music, and will immerse the audience into world of Gallic charm in this first major UK revival since its West End première.

Directed by Gordon Greenburg (who previously directed Barnum at the Chocolate Factory), with choreography by Matt Cole (Olivier award winner for Newsies) and designs by Paul Farnworth
