Originally booking until 22 December 2018, the West End revival of Company has now added an additional 14 weeks to its performance schedule with a new booking period lasting until 30 March 2019.
Featuring a male lead character named Bobby in its original 1970 run, this new take on the Sondheim classic sees the leading role reimagined as a female named Bobbie, played by Olivier-nominated actress Rosalie Craig (The Light Princess, Ragtime, Finding Neverland).
Company follows Bobbie, a 35-year-old bachelorette who can’t seem to catch a break in the dating world. Her friends pressure her to finally find a husband and settle down. The “mid-life crisis” musical features such show-stopping numbers as ‘You Could Drive a Person Crazy’ and ‘The Ladies Who Lunch’.
Backed by an all-star cast that includes stage legend Patti LuPone, who originated the role of Fantine in Les Miserables, it’s no secret that Company musical tickets are among the hottest in the West End right now. Don't miss this critically acclaimed revival of a multi-award-winning musical!
Pay no booking fee when you buy your tickets to Company for Thursday matinee performances until 1 November 2018.
