Kerry Ellis will be on solo tour in October (kerryellis.com indicates 2-22 Oct). KERRY ELLIS IN CONCERT – with special guests
The award winning Kerry Ellis quickly established herself as a rising star after being cast in the role of Elphaba in the smash-hit musical Wicked, both on the West End and Broadway for which she won a Whatsonstage and a Broadway.com Audience award.
Her many other leading role credits include Nancy in Oliver! at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, Ellen in Miss Saigon and Fantine in Les Miserables. Kerry also originated the role of Meat in Queen’s We Will Rock You. Her debut album Anthems was released in 2010 on Decca Records. The success of the album, which reached No.15 in the UK album chart, and No.10 in the UK pop club charts (for Defying Gravity), led to a major tour with legendary Queen guitarist Brian May.
This live concert provides the perfect platform for Kerry to perform the roles that made her the West End’s leading lady of musical theatre.
