PATTI LUPONE AND ROSALIE CRAIG TO STAR IN GENDER-SWITCH COMPANY (26 SEPTEMBER 2017)

As Elliott & Harper Productions is about to begin performances of its first West End show, Simon Stephens' Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, Marianne Elliott has announced that she will be directing a new production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Tony award-winning musical, Company.

For the first time ever, the lead role of Bobby will be re-imagined as a woman. Company will run at the Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue from 26 September 2018 for a strictly limited season, with public booking now open.

Rosalie Craig (The Light Princess, for which she won the Evening Standard Award for Best Actress in a Musical; As You Like It, The Threepenny Opera and London Road - all for the National Theatre; City of Angels for the Donmar) will play Bobbi and Tony and Olivier award-winning Patti LuPone (Les Miserables, The Cradle will Rock, Sunset Boulevard, plus numerous Broadway credits including Evita, Gypsy, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Sweeney Todd, Anything Goes, Noises Off, The Old Neighborhood and Master Class) will play Joanne. The multi-award winning musical comedy about life, love and marriage includes Stephen Sondheim's iconic songs, The Ladies who Lunch, Being Alive and Side by Side.

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."

Patti LuPone added: "I saw War Horse in New York and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in London. I came out of both productions blown away by Ms Elliott's vision. So naturally I am thrilled beyond words that she wants me to be a part of Company. I'm a lucky girl. Marianne, Steve, London. I thought I'd sworn off musicals, but working with Marianne was an opportunity I couldn’t resist."

Elliott & Harper Productions will co-produce a new production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with Catherine Schreiber and West Yorkshire Playhouse at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in November 2017 and will co-produce the 2018 Broadway transfer of Angels in America.
