Leeds Grand Theatre is going to be THE place to be in 2022. There are some absolutely incredible musicals coming to the theatre, from much-loved old friends to the premiere tour of brand new musical Fisherman’s Friends.
Two of my all-time favourite musicals are coming to town – Chicago and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
From 10th – 14th May 2022, Leeds Grand Theatre will host Chicago for one week only. The show will star Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes (Dancing On Ice, Grease, Legally Blonde) as Roxie Hart, and West End star Djalenga Scott (Annie, Chicago, West Side Story) as Velma Kelly.
You just won’t be able to contain your excitement as the show brings you one show-stopping song after another includes Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango, and All That Jazz.
Now for the big one. The AMAZING Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat comes to Leeds from 12th to 23rd July. The sensational brand new production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat comes to Leeds Grand Theatre for two weeks only! With stars from the London Palladium, Jason Donovan and Jac Yarrow, the multi-award winning show features songs that have gone on to become absolute classics, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me, There’s One More Angel In Heaven and Go, Go, Go Joseph.
If anyone knows me AT ALL, they’ll know this is simply the best news in the universe right now. It’s great to see theatres reopening, but it’s even better to hear Joseph is touring again.
The final announcement recently has been Fisherman’s Friends, running from 8th – 19th November. Based on the true story of the chart-topping Cornish singing sensations and their hit 2019 movie, Fisherman’s Friends: The Musical is a feel-good voyage about friendship, community and music that will give any land-lover a mighty pair of sea legs. It’s going to be a fab show that’s sure to put a spring in your step and a sea shanty in your heart.
