International theatre star Ramin Karimloo returns to London for Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre concert series for 3 intimate performances, produced by Mark Cortale.
Karimloo is best known for his Olivier nominated performance in Love Never Dies and The Phantom of The Opera on the West End and the Broadway revival of Les Miserables (Valjean) for which he received a Tony nomination. Seth Rudetsky recently starred in a charity gala of his Broadway musical Disaster! in 2016 at Charing Cross Theatre.
Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre began in 2013 with Patti LuPone, then featured Audra McDonald in 2017 and most recently John Barrowman this April. What differentiates this concert series from any other perhaps, is the seamless mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from Broadway’s biggest stars – prompted by Rudetsky’s probing, funny, revealing questions – and their stellar singing of musical theatre repertoire.This is a spontaneous evening of hilarity and show-stopping songs that is not to be missed.
Called “a global actor for a global time” by The New York Times, Iranian-born, Canadian-raised Tony and Olivier Award-nominated actor and singer Ramin has taken the West End and Broadway by storm with stand-out performances in the most iconic roles in musical theatre, as well as nuanced characterisations in new and surprising pieces of theatre. He recently starred on Broadway in the smash-hit new musical Anastasia, originating the role of Gleb Vaganov, a new character written for the stage adaptation and tailored to his talents.
