Janie Dee, Richard Fleeshman and Jamie Parker will lead the spectacular line-up of performers set to take to the Palace Theatre stage for Kings Of Broadway: Herman, Sondheim & Styne, a musical concert celebrating the work of the three titular composers, in November.
Olivier Award-winning actress Dee, Urinetown The Musical’s Fleeshman and current High Society star Parker are among more than 20 West End regulars set to star in the concert on 29 November.
Other much-loved stage performers lending their vocal talents to the evening of musical theatre classics are Les Misérables stars past and present – Peter Lockyer, Celinde Schoenmaker, Michael Colbourne and Zoe Doano – former Miss Saigon actor Alistair Brammer and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers’ Laura Pitt-Pulford.
Completing the cast are Caroline Sheen (Mary Poppins, West End), Andy Conaghan (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels The Musical, West End), Emma Kingston (In The Heights, Southwark Playhouse), Anna O’Byrne (ENO’s Sweeney Todd), Anne Reid (Hedda Gabler, The Old Vic), Fra Fee, Bradley Jaden, Claudia Kariuki, Laura Tebbutt, Deborah Crowe and Alex Young.
Directed by Alastair Knights, who also directed January’s one-off concert version of A Little Night Music, in which many of the performers also starred, Kings Of Broadway: Herman, Sondheim & Styne will feature songs from an array of Jerry Herman, Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne’s hugely popular musicals.
Accompanied by a 30-piece orchestra, the star-studded cast will perform tunes from current West End hit Gypsy alongside much-loved classics including Hello, Dolly!, Dear World, La Cage Aux Folles, Funny Girl and Sunday In The Park With George.
The production will play just one evening performance at the Palace Theatre during the festive run of Derren Brown: Miracle, which sees the Olivier Award-winning psychological illusionist return to the West End from 11 November.
