October Theatre date for Lee Mead
Lee Mead, currently the recipient of rave reviews for his portrayal of Caractacus Potts in the critically acclaimed West Yorkshire Playhouse national tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, returns to the stage this autumn with his ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ tour.
Performing at Oakengates Theatre @ The Place on Friday 21 October, the show will feature music from Lee’s most recent top twenty bestselling studio album of the same name and will see the multi-talented performer fulfil a personal ambition and perform a show of classic songs from the Hollywood musicals.
Among his musical choices is, as the tour name suggests, ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ from the 1949 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific.
This is complemented with material that includes ‘Singin’ In The Rain’, from the 1952 MGM musical comedy starring Gene Kelly, and ‘Luck Be A Lady’ from Guys and Dolls, to name just a few.
Ever since Lee won the coveted role of Joseph in the TV series ‘Any Dream Will Do’, he hasn’t looked back and starred in hit west end musicals ‘Joseph’, ‘Wicked’ and ‘Legally Blonde’ before scoring a role in the long running BBC One drama ‘Casualty’ playing the character ‘Lofty’.
Lee will be accompanied on the 12 date tour by his band with Musical Director Mason Neely, who also produced Lee’s top twenty album Some Enchanted Evening.
After the tour Lee will complete the year with a starring role in Cinderella as Prince Charming.
