“Phone rings, door chimes, and in comes…” a whole galaxy’s worth of critics’ stars for Company! Marianne Elliott’s reimagining of Sondheim’s classic musical has announced it has extended booking at the Gielgud Theatre through to 30 March 2019, following an overwhelming critical reception.

Starring Rosalie Craig in the central role of Bobbie, alongside Patti LuPone, Mel Giedroyc and Jonathan Bailey, Company’s story of life, love and marriage opened last night (17 October) to a star-packed audience which included Emma Thompson, Graham Norton, Andrew Garfield and Andrew Scott, amongst others.

And now the production has revealed that a further 100,000 tickets for the run will be released.

Company is directed by Marianne Elliott, Artistic Director of Elliott & Harper Productions, a company she founded in 2016 with producer Chris Harper. Marianne was awarded an OBE in the 2018 Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List for her services to theatre.

In this new production of the classic Broadway musical, Company sees the central character of Bobbie portrayed for the first time as a woman. Featuring the classic Sondheim songs The Ladies Who Lunch, Being Alive, Side by Side and You Could Drive A Person Crazy, the story starts at Bobbie’s 35th birthday party – where all her friends wonder why she isn’t married.

So don’t miss one of the must-see musicals of the season – if you catch it, you’ll be in good Company!

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
