See Sondheim’s classic musical like never before with Company tickets, starring Broadway icon Patti LuPone
Broadway legend Patti LuPone makes her first West End appearance after 25 years in newly formed theatre company Elliot & Harper Production’s revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Company. Playing for a strictly limited season at the Gielgud Theatre, the musical masterpiece last received a major London revival in 1995 at the Donmar Warehouse, directed by Sam Mendes.
Featuring music and lyrics by theatre titan Sondheim and a book by George Furth, Company is the musical comedy about life, love and marriage. Following Bobby, who has been gender-swapped in this production to become Bobbi, the story sees her on her 35th birthday, receiving visits from her family and friends who wonder why she still hasn’t found a steady relationship.
With musical numbers including “Another Hundred People”, “Getting Married Today”, “The Ladies Who Lunch” and “Being Alive”, Company is a multi-Tony Award-winning show, receiving six awards at the 1971 ceremony, including Best Musical and Best Score.
Rosalie Craig stars as Bobbi, after an Olivier Award-nominated role in the National Theatre’s The Light Princess, as well as starring in productions including City of Angels, Finding Neverland and London Road.

LuPone’s illustrious stage career includes leading roles in Les Misérables, Evita, Sunset Boulevard, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Gypsy, Sweeney Todd and more.
