“I’m looking forward to working with a group of men who have such diverse performance experiences and exquisite silhouettes, and I hope to have a chance to make something beautiful.”
Athlete Ross Edgley is heading out on his debut tour, following making history at the tail end of last year having become the first person to swim around the entire coast of mainland Great Britain.
Following a spectacular international tour in Dubai, Istanbul and Trieste, the 2019 UK tour opened at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley, in January – the smash hit show is heading to Storyhouse next month.
“I cannot describe how excited and honoured I am to be stepping into the prestigious coloured coat! When I think of iconic roles in musical theatre, Joseph was always one that I dreamt of playing growing up. And to finally say that I am going to play it is a “dream” come true. I cannot wait to meet all of the loyal Joseph fans and bring you my take of this amazing dream role.”
“Heart of Darkness is simply too important a work to be avoided because it’s a political minefield and when you take on a text as tricky as Conrad’s novel you have to tread carefully.”
“At Storyhouse we’re committed to creating a diverse offer for our audiences. And this season we’re delighted to present a strong programme of opera and dance, both from companies new to us and also returning friends.”
