BROADWAY AND WEST END MISS SAIGON STAR TO PLAY FIYERO
IN THE LONG-RUNNING CLASSIC MUSICAL FROM 22 JULY 2019
WICKED, the classic West End musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, is pleased to announce that Miss Saigon star Alistair Brammer will play Fiyero at London's Apollo Victoria Theatre from Monday 22 July 2019.
Alistair Brammer (Fiyero) made his Broadway debut in 2017 as 'Chris' in Cameron Mackintosh's revival of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's Miss Saigon. He made his professional West End debut as 'Marius' in Boublil and Schönberg's Les Misérables in 2009. His other West End roles include 'Billy Narracott' in War Horse, directed by Marianne Elliot and Tom Morris, and 'Chris' in the award-winning London revival of Miss Saigon (for which he was nominated 'Best Actor in a Musical' at the 2015 WhatsOnStage Awards). In October 2010, Alistair played 'Jean Prouvaire' in the 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables at The O2 and, in September 2014, he played 'Chris' in the 25th Anniversary Gala performance of Miss Saigon at London's Prince Edward Theatre. Alistair's television and film appearances include 'Jack Diamond' in 18 episodes of Casualty (BBC), 'Jean Prouvaire' in Les Misérables (Working Title), directed by Tom Hooper, and 'Freddy' in the forthcoming Medieval.
Michael McCabe, Executive Producer (UK) of WICKED said: "We are delighted to welcome Alistair Brammer back to the West End following his great success on Broadway as 'Chris' in Miss Saigon and we very much look forward to him joining the new cast of Wicked which will lead us into our fourteenth year in the West End."
WICKED recently launched an official information and services hub designed specifically and exclusively for group organisers. The new digital resource provides relevant information on the award-winning musical's group sales offerings, booking methodology and pricing as well as information about nearby attractions, partner hotels and restaurants and the multi-billion-pound regeneration of Victoria.
"Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes" (The Guardian), WICKED is already the 9th longest running musical in West End history. Winner of over 100 major awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning 'Best West End Show' on three occasions), the classic musical has now been seen by almost 10 million people in London alone.
"A TRULY MAGICAL NIGHT FULL OF IMAGINATION AND EMOTION
THAT IS NOT TO BE MISSED."
Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum's beloved characters from 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
