When news first broke in the early hours of 28 January that Lee was to return to the West End to play Fiyero in Wicked from 10 May, it came straight out of left field - once again Lee has done the unexpected and I have no doubt this move will be as successful as previous such decisions.
It became 'official' later in the day and the announcement on the Wicked website gives the details. Congratulations to Lee - these pictures (top and bottom © Tristram Kenton, centre taken from the meet the new cast video) give a little taster of him in the role.
