News and Gossip
Marianne Elliott’s Olivier Award-winning production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical comedy Company will transfer to Broadway next season with Patti LuPone. The much-celebrated gender-swapped production will see Broadway star Katrina Lenk as Bobbie. Read our 2018 interview with Marianne Elliott on making it in theatre here.
It has also been reported that Broadway star Ben Platt – who won a Tony Award for his role in Dear Evan Hansen in 2018, the London production of which opens later this year – is set to lead the cast in a film version of Stephen Sondheim’s Merry We Roll Along, directed by epic filmmaker Richard Linklater.
However, it’s likely the film will take a long time to make it to the big screen, with Linklater planning to shoot the film over the same timespan covered by the musical: 20 years.
On Your Feet! – the hit show featuring the songs of Emilio and Gloria Estefan – will return to the West End in 2020 for a brand-new run. The production is about to embark on an international tour, but the plan is then to return to the show to the capital.
