The Baker's Wife

The arrival of a new Baker and his younger wife turns a provincial French village upside down in this cult classic musical from the legendary Stephen Schwartz (composer of Godspell, Wicked, Pippin) and Joseph Stein (writer of Fiddler On The Roof).

WhatsOnStage award winner Lucie Jones (Wicked, Waitress) and Olivier awardwinner Clive Rowe (Sister Act) star as Genevieve the Baker’s Wife and Aimable the Baker, with Mark Extance, Josefina Gabrielle, Michael Matus, Joaquin Pedro Valdes, David Seadon-Young, and Matthew Seadon-Young. Joining them are Bobbie Chambers, Jack Gardner, Hana Ichijo, and Robyn Rose.

Based on the film La Femme du Boulanger by Marcel Pagnol and Jean Giono,THE BAKER’S WIFE is filled with some of Schwartz’s most ravishingly beautiful music, and will immerse the audience into world of Gallic charm in this first major UK revival since its West End premiere.

Directed by Gordon Greenberg (who previously directed Barnum at the Chocolate Factory), with choreography by Matt Cole (Olivier award winner for Newsies) and designs by Paul Farnsworth, this brand new production plays for a limited 10-week season from 6 July.
