Since its announcement, the cast of the upcoming production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Company has been setting the West End tongues a-wagging. With Patti LuPone, Mel Giedroyc, and Rosalie Craig announced to play the gender-flipped roles of Joanne, Sarah, and Bobbie respectively, the star-power of this show is already blinding. But today, the ante was upped with the announcement of the three male love interests.

Playing Bobbie’s boyfriends are Richard Fleeshman as Andy, George Blagden as PJ, and Matthew Seadon-Young as Theo. For this gender-reversed production, Stephen Sondheim renamed the roles himself. Andy was originally April, PJ was originally Marta, and Theo was Kathy.

In addition to the three suiters, Gavin Spokes has been cast as Harry, who is married to Sarah (Mel), Richard Henders and Jennifer Saayeng will play David and Jenny, Ashley Campbell will play Peter and Ben Lewis will play opposite Patti LuPone as Joanne’s husband Larry.

At Bobbie’s 35th birthday party all her friends are wondering why she isn’t married, why she can’t find the right man, and why she hasn’t settled down to have a family. The multi-award-winning musical comedy about life, love and marriage includes the iconic songs The Ladies who Lunch, Being Alive, Side by Side and You Could Drive a Person Crazy.

Currently, Richard Fleeshman is in Sting’s new musical, The Last Ship. His past stage appearances include Ghost the Musical, Legally Blonde the Musical, Guys and Dolls, Damsel in Distress and UrineTown: The Musical.

George Blagden is currently playing the lead role of Louis XIV in TV’s Versailles, as well as starring in Tartuffe at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. His other theatre credits include The Pitchfork Disney at Shoreditch Town Hall and Platinum at Hampstead Theatre. He played Grantaire in the film version of Les Miserables and other TV work includes Black Mirror: Hang the DJ.

Matthew Seadon-Young recently appeared in Assassins at the Gate Theatre in Dublin. His other stage work includes Big Fish, Beautiful, Sweeney Todd and UrineTown: The Musical. He also appeared in the feature film, Pride.

Previews begin 26 September at the Gielgud Theatre.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
