First look at Company rehearsals

First Published 30 August 2018, Last Updated 31 August 2018

It’s the legendary Broadway musical comedy – Company – as you’ve never seen it before. And it’s starring Patti LuPone, Rosalie Craig and Mel Giedroyc to boot.

So when we were granted the opportunity to take a quick look inside the Company rehearsal room ahead of its first performance at the Gielgud Theatre on 26 September, we couldn’t wait to have a look, courtesy of Helen Maybanks’ camera…

Marianne Elliott directs Company in the West End in a stirring re-imagination of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical comedy about life, love and marriage. The latest show from Elliott & Harper Productions following Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, this brilliant team present the iconic musical Company with the lead role of “Bobby” re-imagined for the first time as a woman.

At Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, all her friends are wondering: why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man? Why doesn’t she settle down and have a family? Featuring Stephen Sondheim’s iconic songs The Ladies Who Lunch, Being Alive and Side By Side, Company questions what it means to love, marry and mature.
