About Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends

Experience this celebration of Sondheim. Come and see the triumphant return of this acclaimed concert to the West End. Book tickets to Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends on Box Office today.

A dedication to the iconic composer's legacy, Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends was initially a one-night gala spectacle starring an array of incredible performers, which sold out in a few hours. In response to the tremendous demand, producer Cameron Mackintosh will bring Old Friends back to the stage at the Gielgud Theatre for a limited 16-week run.

Experience the magic of Sondheim's classics with songs from timeless gems like Sunday in the Park With George and Company. Tony Award winners Bernadette Peters and Lea Salonga will star in the concert, joined by a handpicked ensemble of the finest West End performers. Peters graced the stage at the Old Friends gala last year, while Salonga returns to the West End after an absence of 27 years.

Matthew Bourne and Julia McKenzie expertly direct Old Friends. They are joined by choreographer Stephen Mear, musical supervisor Stephen Brooker, set designer Matt Kinley, projection artist George Reeve, costume creator Jill Parker, lighting designer Warren Letton, and sound designer Mick Potter, with musical arrangements by Stephen Metcalfe.
