About 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 award winner Clive Rowe (Sister Act) star as Genevieve, the Baker’s Wife and Aimable, the Baker, with Mark Extance, Josefina Gabrielle, Jack Gardner, Michael Matus, Norman Pace, David Seadon-Young, Matthew Seadon-Young, Joaquin Pedro Valdes, and Finty Williams. Joining them are Bobbie Chambers,Hana Ichijo, Bart Lambert, David Pendlebury, Robyn Rose and Annabelle Williams.

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), designs by Paul Farnsworth, musical supervision by Stuart Morley, lighting design by Paul Anderson, and sound design by Yvonne Gilbert, this brand new production plays for a strictly limited 10-week season from 6 July.
