The West End revival of Company recently shared new footage of the production; take a look in the tweet below.
Tony winner Patti LuPone and Rosalie Craig star in the new production helmed by War Horse and Curious Incident director Marianne Elliott, which re-imagines the Stephen Sondheim- and George Furth-penned show with several gender changes. Craig plays the perpetually unmarried Bobbie (formerly Bobby), with Jonathan Bailey playing newlywed Jamie (formerly Amy). LuPone is returning to the role of Joanne following her performance in the 2011 Lincoln Center concert production directed by Lonny Price.
The production opened to positive reviews October 17 at the Gielgud Theatre, where it is currently scheduled to continue through March 30, 2019. Though a Broadway transfer has been rumored, nothing official has yet been announced.
LuPone, Craig, and Bailey are joined by Mel Giedroyc as Sarah, Alex Gaumond as Paul, Richard Fleeshman as Andy (formerly April), George Blagden as PJ (formerly Marta), Matthew Seadon-Young as Theo (formerly Kathy), Gavin Spokes as Harry, Richard Henders and Jennifer Saayeng as David and Jenny, Ashley Campbell as Peter, and Ben Lewis playing opposite LuPone as Joanne’s husband Larry.
The creative team also includes musical supervisor and conductor Joel Fram, choreographer Liam Steel, designer Christie, lighting designer Neil Austin, sound designer Ian Dickinson (for Autograph Sound), illusions designer Chris Fisher, orchestrator David Cullen, dance arranger Sam Davis, and casting directors Alastair Coomer CDG and Charlotte Sutton CDG.
