THE music of all the hit shows comes to the Palace Theatre when ‘Beyond the Barricade’ takes to the stage.
This performance has delighted audiences across the UK, mainland Europe, Asia and New Zealand for nearly two decades, with its concert portrayal of the greatest songs in musical theatre.
Recreating original West End and Broadway musical hits the cast of past principal performers from Les Miserables, present a blockbusting two hour show, which is now established as the nation’s favourite musical theatre concert.
Featuring Andy Reiss, David Fawcett, Katie Leeming and Poppy Tierney, together with their own ensemble of talented musicians, ‘Beyond the Barricade’ features songs from The Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Jersey Boys, The Lion King, BloodBrothers, Miss Saigon, Hamilton and many others, climaxing with a spectacular finale from, of course, Les Miserables.
Andy Reiss and David Fawcett devised ‘Beyond the Barricade’ after appearing in the Manchester and London casts of Les Mis.
David played the lead role of Jean Valjean in both these productions, while multi-talented Andy took on the roles of most of the male characters and still remains the only person to take on the job of being the shows resident director and perform in it at the same time.
Joining them is Katie Leeming, who joined Beyond the Barricade after playing the lead role of Eponine in the West End production of Les Mis.
Katie has also appeared with the cast of Les Mis on the televised Classical Brits awards and was also an ensemble vocalists in the movie of the show.
Poppy Tierney played Cosette in Les Mis on the UK tour and in the West End and has also played leading roles in Evita, The Witches of Eastwick, and Miss Saigon.
She’s also just completed filming for the new Abba film, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.
Not only that but all four of them have also featured in the Les Mis 25th anniversary concert at the O2 Arena, London.
