We'll Drink to That! Gender-Swapped 'Company' with Patti LuPone Heading to the West End

We'd like to propose a toast! Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Company is heading to London's Gielgud Theatre, and this time, it's about Bobbi, not Bobby. Olivier Award nominee Rosalie Craig will headline the West End production as the now-female lead character. Even better, two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone will belt out “Ladies Who Lunch” as Joanne. Helmed by Tony-winning director Marianne Elliott, performances are set to begin on September 26, 2018.
