Old Friends

Following a massive triumph at the 2023 WhatsOnStage Awards, OLD FRIENDS will open for 16 weeks only from 16 September 2023 – 6 January 2024 at the Gielgud Theatre.

Devised and produced by Cameron Mackintosh, OLD FRIENDS all-star cast will  include Bernadette Peters who is appearing in a West End run for the first time in her legendary career and Lea Salonga who is appearing for the first time in 27 years.  Co-stars include Christine Allado, Janie Dee, Bonnie Langford and Jeremy Secomb. Joining them will be Beatrice Penny-Touré, Joanna Riding, and Jac Yarrow with further exciting casting to be announced soon.

The thrilling, joyously staged Gala of Stephen Sondheim’s OLD FRIENDS in 2022 sold out within a couple of hours, leaving thousands of disappointed fans unable to get tickets. Now by popular demand, audiences will have another chance to see the never to be forgotten and one of the most talked about theatrical events of the year.
