Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

MU­SIC lovers will not want to miss the chance to see a West End star in Bucks next month. Lee Mead, who won the BBC’s Any Dream Will Do and is cur­rently play­ing nurse Ben ‘Lofty’ Chiltern in Ca­su­alty, is bring­ing his new show, In Con­cert with Lee Mead, to Wy­combe Swan, in St Mary Street, High Wy­combe, on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 12.

He will be ac­com­pa­nied on stage by a three-piece band led by mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Ma­son Neely.

Lee has been a reg­u­lar in London’s West End since star­ring for 18 months in Joseph and the Amaz­ing Tech­ni­color Dream­coat after win­ning Any Dream Will Do. He went on to study act­ing at the pres­ti­gious Lee Stras­burg In­sti­tute in New York be­fore re­turn­ing to the West End for star­ring roles in Wicked and Legally Blonde. Lee is also a founder mem­ber of West End Men, which has played at the Vaudeville The­atre in London and the­atres around the coun­try and over­seas.

In this new show, the ver­sa­tile artist will per­form sev­eral mu­si­cal clas­sics such as his hit sin­gle Any Dream Will Do and Close Ev­ery Door from Joseph, as well as favourites such as Danc­ing Through Life from Wicked and selections from Les Misérables, Phan­tom of the Opera and Je­sus Christ Su­per­star. This will be com­ple­mented by a se­lec­tion of Hol­ly­wood clas­sics, and some of Lee’s per­sonal favourites from his three solo al­bums – Lee Mead, Noth­ing Else Mat­ters and Love Songs.

Lee will be joined on stage by two guest singers for some songs.
