The first thing we thought when we saw this casting was: when can we see this in London?! Currently playing Jean Valjean in Les Miserables on an international tour, Killian Donnelly takes to the road again for producer Cameron Mackintosh, taking the title role in The Phantom of the Opera's new 2020 tour.
Yes, it’s true, the West End production of the award-winning Kinky Boots is being filmed later this month for future worldwide screening and from 26-28 November original cast members Killian Donnelly and Matt Henry are going to revisit their roles of Charlie and Lola. It’s going to be emotional…
A stream of A-listers including Paul McCartney, Bryan Cranston, Judi Dench, Henry Cavill, Whoopi Goldberg, Jack Black, Steve Martin and more have contributed to a music video for ‘The Hero – A West End & Friends Tribute’ alongside stars of London’s West End (Charlie Stemp, Marisha Wallace, Cleve September, Kerry Ellis and oodles more #StageFaves). Everyone involved wished to pay thanks to servicemen and women around the world and to raise money for the UK charity, Help For Heroes.
We thought vlogger Perry O'Bree had met a vast array of West End stars on Day One of West End Live 2018, but there was no let up on Day Two as you can see! Watch all his backstage video interviews with #StageFaves including Killian Donnelly, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Danielle Hope, Suzie Mathers and many others. There’s even a great view of performances from Heathers The Musical, Eugenius! and Killian singing with The Barricade Boys – to name a few!
Killian Donnelly will make history as the first Irishman to play the role since Colm Wilkinson in the original production. Watch him chat below about bringing the show home to Dublin…
