"The West End Men is a show that breaks the mould. This sharp and sexy musical theatre concert is driven by astonishing voices and formidable musicianship. The cast of three, handpicked from the heart of the West End, are some of the finest performers of their generation. Charismatic and fiercely talented, they present a selection of signature numbers from some of their most famous roles together with a carefully chosen smorgasbord of some of the best known show tunes in the world."
Joining Lee on the bill for the July concerts were Stephen Rahman-Hughes (West Side Story, Bombay Dreams, Teatro) and Olivier nominee Matt Rawle (Zorro, Aspects of Love, Martin Guerre), with special guest Kerry Ellis.
For the November concerts and a one-off Singapore date in December, Ramin Karimloo (Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies, Les Miserables) joined the line-up in place of Matt Rawle who will be starring in Cabaret at the West End's Savoy Theatre. With Kerry Ellis also busy then with her own tour with Brian May, the men's special guest for the UK dates was the lovely Ashleigh Gray and for Singapore the equally lovely Joanne Ampil.
