Broadchurch and W1A star Jonathan Bailey, and West End favourite Alex Gaumond, will join the upcoming revival of Company with Rosalie Craig and Patti LuPone, completing its casting.

Bailey will play Jamie (originally written as the female character Amy), and Gaumond will play his besotted fiancée, Paul. Also announced today is Daisy Maywood (past credits include The Flying Lovers Of Vitebsk) as Susan.

Bailey’s casting adds to theatre credits in The York Realist (Donmar), King Lear (Chichester) and American Psycho (Almeida Theatre), alongside appearances in Chewing Gum and Doctor Who. Gaumond, meanwhile, has previously played Miss Trunchbull in the RSC’s Matilda The Musical, as well as starring in We Will Rock You, Legally Blonde – The Musical and the ENO’s Sweeney Todd with Emma Thompson.

The trio join a glittering Company cast which includes Craig as Bobbie, LuPone as Joanne, Mel Giedroyc as Sarah, George Blagden as PJ, Ashley Campbell as Peter, and Richard Fleeshman as Andy.

The cast also includes Richard Henders as David, Ben Lewis as Larry, Jennifer Saying as Jenny, Matthew Seadon-Young as Theo, and Gavin Spokes as Harry, along with Michael Colbourne, Francesca Ellis, Ewan Gillies, Grant Neal and Jaimie Pruden.

The multi-award winning musical comedy Company is revived by the Marianne Elliott, and is set at Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, where all of her friends wonder why she isn’t married and settled down yet.

Packed with iconic songs such as Being Alive, Side By Side and You Could Drive A Person Crazy, Company is a hilarious reflection on life, love and marriage.

Performances begin 26 September at the West End’s Gielgud Theatre.
