Maiya Quansah-Breed will be joining the cast of The Distance You Have Come. She replaces Alexia Khadime, who is no longer able to do the show, as Prince of Egypt is opening soon and the rehearsals directly clash.
The Producers say “While it is a huge shame for us to lose Alexia, we are thrilled for her and the rest of “The Prince of Egypt” team that their show is coming back so soon! We are really excited to be joined by the brilliant Maiya Quansah-Breed and look forward to her interpretation on the role”.
Maiya played Catherine Parr in SIX (Original London West End, UK tour) and you may have seen her as Mimi in Rent (Hope Mill Theatre).
She joins the previously announced Andy Coxon (West Side Story, Beautiful – The Carole King Musical); Alice Fearn (Come From Away, Wicked); Adrian Hansel (Starlight Express, Hairspray); Emma Hatton (Evita, Wicked) and Dean John-Wilson (Kind and I, Aladdin).
The Distance You Have Come is at The Apollo Theatre on 21st and 28th June 2021.
