Photo Coverage: Bailey And Pitt-Pulford In Sondheim's MARRY ME A LITTLE

First production images are released today of Stephen Sondheim's Marry Me A Little, which is now playing St. James Studio for 16 performances only starring Simon Bailey as Man and Laura Pitt-Pulford as Woman.

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. 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. Simon is also a founder member of 'Theatreland's First Supergroup' Teatro.

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.

Marry Me a Little was co-created by Craig Lucas, who met Sondheim whilst performing in the ensemble of the original Broadway production of Sweeney Todd. In discussions at rehearsals and parties, Sondheim mentioned to Lucas the large number of songs he had written that hadn't been performed or published. Lucas requested permission to use these songs, and with his collaborator Norman René, pieced them together to create a narrative between a young man and woman. Marry Me a Little premiered Off-Off Broadway in 1980 and was described by the New York Times as "an unusually moving evening". It was last seen in London in 1997 at the Bridewell Theatre in a production starring Clive Carter and Rebecca Front.

Marry Me a Little is conceived and developed by Craig Lucas and Norman René, with music by Stephen Sondheim. It is directed by Hannah Chissick with musical direction by David Randall. It is produced by Aria Entertainment in association with Guy James and Knockhardy Productions, and by special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre Internationalof New York.
