Sondheim’s Marry Me a Little returns to the St James Studio starring Simon Bailey & Laura Pitt-Pulford

It has been announced that Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me a Little will return to the St James Studio for a week of performances following its recent sold out run. 

West End stars Simon Bailey and Laura Pitt-Pulford will both reprise their acclaimed performances for the limited run between Monday 6th and Saturday 11th October 2014.

The story is told entirely through songs written early in Sondheim’s career or previously intended for his ground-breaking Broadway musicals including: A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Company, Follies and A Little Night Music

The show pieces together a selection of songs by the undisputed master of the contemporary Broadway musical to tell a charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival as a modern singleton. Marry Me a Little is described as a "funny, moving and sophisticated" musical as well as a "fascinating look at the songs that got away”.

Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, unshared fantasies, never knowing that they’re just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams. 

Simon Bailey was most recently seen as Liam in I Can’t Sing! at the London Palladium. Prior to this he toured the UK as Raoul in Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of The Phantom of the Opera. His West End credits include Lieutenant Torrasso/Count Ludovic in Passion at the Donmar Warehouse, Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre, Enjolras in Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre and Britney in We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre.

Laura Pitt-Pulford was most recently seen as The Falconer in the Tori Amos musical The Light Princess at the National Theatre. Other recent credits include A Man of No Importance at Salisbury Playhouse, Piaf at Leicester Curve Theatre, Hello Dolly at Leicester Curve Theatre, Mack & Mabel at Southwark Playhouse and Parade at Southwark Playhouse. She is currently appearing in The Return of the Solider at the Jermyn Street Theatre
