  • “5 STARS! AN ELECTRIFYING MODERNISATION. A succession of ‘star turns.” Londonist 
  • “5 STARS! IT FEELS SMART, FRESH AND RELEVANT. This approach makes it a revelation all over again. What’s wonderful about Elliott is her consistency and care. It’s thrillingly inventive.

  • “5 STARS! STUNNING. Rosalie Craig, radiant in a ravishing red party dress, may be playing a tentative, emotionally disconnected character, but she pulls off the astonishing feat of making usconnect with her. A departure into new territory and a stunning reaffirmation of its brilliance.” LondonTheatre.co.uk  
  • “4 STARS! Elliott has reimagined this musical for a new age and an application that is more universal than ever.” Financial Times 
  • “4 STARS! Song by song, moment by moment, it delivers. Patti LuPone astounds. A bona fide star…she steals the show.” The Times 
Marianne Elliott directs COMPANY, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s legendary musical comedy about life, love and marriage. At Bobbie’s 35th birthday party all her friends are wondering why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man and why can’t she settle down and have a family? Rosalie Craig stars in the central role of ‘Bobbie’ and Patti LuPone plays Joanne in this gender reversed production that has been blessed by Sondheim – the first production to be allowed to change the gender of the characters.
