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.
