Gareth Gates headlines MOMENTOUS MUSICALS, a world première gala concert at New Wimbledon Theatre, for one night only tonight, 14th July 2012.
Gareth Gates (Joseph, Les Misérables) leads this homage to musical theatre, featuring songs from much-loved shows including West Side Story, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked and Miss Saigon. He is joined by a cast of West End stars including blonde bombshell Rachael Wooding (Jersey Boys, Hairspray), an amazing ensemble of dancers and a live on stage band.
Since being catapulted into the limelight as a finalist on the original Pop Idol 10 years ago, Gareth Gates has sold over 3 million singles in the UK, and toured extensively as a solo artist, playing to sold out arenas. He has recently carved out an enviable niche for himself as a lead musical theatre artist, with coveted starring roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and Les Misérables for Sir Cameron Mackintosh.
Rachael Wooding recently played the lead role of Mary Delgado in the long-running West End production of the smash-hit musical Jersey Boys. Her previous West End credits include the lead roles of Amber in Hairspray, Meatloaf in We Will Rock You and Serena in Fame. She also played title role in the recent UK tour of Evita to extensive critical and popular acclaim.
Momentous Musicals is a brand new concert celebration of the very best in musical theatre, showcasing soaring ballads and fondly remembered songs from the most significant musicals of our generation. High production values and top-notch talent combine to offer an unforgettable evening of popular songs, eclipsing even its closest rival with artistic aplomb.
Momentous Musicals is produced by Neil Eckersley for Speckulation Entertainment. It is directed by John Garfield-Roberts, with choreography by Racky Plews.
