Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Beyond the Barricade. The UK’s longest running Musical Theatre Concert Tour features past principal performers from Les Misérables. Delivering over two hours of the best of Broadway and the West End, and of course, ending with a stunning finale from Les Mis.
The concert features David Fawcett (Valjean) Andy Reiss (Enjolras & Resident Director for the National Tour of Les Miserables) Katie Leeming (Eponine) and Poppy Tierney (Cosette), together with a live band who capture the feel of the original orchestrations of the chosen musicals. To this day every musical note is still played and sung live – very rare indeed. Beyond the Barricade gives musical theatre songs a bold concert format treatment – but with the conviction and intention to deliver the material as if the audience is watching the original performance.
Theatre Royal Brighton opened in 1806 and is one of the oldest working theatres in the country. Ibsen premiered a UK production of The Doll’s House at the Theatre and Lord Olivier, John Gielgud and Dame Judi Dench have all performed on the famous stage. Theatre Royal Brighton has a bright future as it starts a third century of entertaining audiences.
