If you were excited about Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton starring in Rock of Ages at The Grand, then you’re about to be very disappointed.
Instead, Antony Costa is taking the lead from Monday 29 July to Thursday 1st August. Best known for being a member of boyband Blue, Antony Costa is a reality TV star in his own right. He’s played Stacee Jaxx in Rock of Ages before, to critical acclaim, so this role shouldn’t be too tricky for him!
This is super news for people who’ve never heard of Kevin Clifton, and particularly good news if you’re a fan of Blue like I am!
Previous theatre credits include Mickey Johnstone in the West End production of Blood Brothers, and the UK tour of Save The Last Dance For Me. I’ve not seen Antony Costa take on a stage role before, though I have seen him star in I’m a Celeb!
Catch Rock of Ages at Leeds Grand from 29 July to 3 August 2019.
