Simon Bailey and Laura Pitt-Pulford will star in the upcoming revival of Stephen Sondheim's Marry me a Little at the St James Studio, which opens next month.

Directed by Hannah Chissick, the show runs from 29 July to 10 August and features songs from early in Sondheim's career.

Simon Bailey, who plays Man, most recently played Liam O'Deary in I Can't Sing! at the London Palladium. His other stage credits include Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera (UK tour), [title of show] (Landor), Passion (Donmar Warehouse), Les Miserables (Queen's).

Laura Pitt-Pulford played The Falconer in The Light Princess (National Theatre). Her other credits include A Man of No Importace (Salisbury Playhouse), Piaf and Hello Dolly (Leicester Curve).

First seen in 1980, Marry me a Little is themed around issues of love, loneliness and survival as a modern singleton.

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.

Marry me a Little is conceived and developed by Craig Lucas and Norman René. It has musical direction by David Randall.
