The UK’s longest running Musical Theatre Concert Tour features past principal performers from Les Miserables. Delivering over two hours of the best of Broadway and the West End, and a stunning finale from Les Mis.
The concert features David Fawcett (Valjean), Andy Reiss (Enjolras & Resident Director for the National Tour of Les Miserables), Katie Leeming (Eponine) and Poppy Tierney (Cosette), together with a live band who capture the feel of the original orchestrations of the chosen musicals.
To this day every musical note is still played and sung live – very rare indeed. Beyond the Barricade gives musical theatre songs a bold concert format treatment – but with the conviction and intention to deliver the material as if the audience are watching the original performance. This incredible concert is now in its 19th successive year.
The pièce de résistance is ‘One Day More’ – a song which is normally performed by eight principals, a 25 ensemble and a 40 piece orchestra. Beyond the Barricade has four singers and four musicians – it is simply an astonishing and spectacular performance. – Mid Sussex Times
Everyone got what they came for and more. This was no mere sampler of the genre – these performers brought the depth of their collective experience and the essence of each musical into their performance, and boy, do they know how to please a crowd. – New Zealand. ‘The Stuff’ Press Review.
A must-see show for musical fans. – Portsmouth News
