1 down, 2 to go…

We had a great show last night at Fort Regent – great audience, no major hiccups – what more can you want!

It’s pretty cool to be doing a major concert of Les Mis in the homeland (well, one of them!) of Victor Hugo. Having worked quite a bit Guernsey, I’m glad to have had the chance to do the Jersey side of things too.

If you’re in Jersey today – come along and see us! Matinee at 2.30 and evening show at 7.30 tonight. Great cast, great orchestra, great venue. Hurrah!!

Blast from the past…

I’m just sat in a coffee shop with a drink on my way home from rehearsals at Dance Attic in Fulham for the Les Miserables concert which I’ll be performing in over in Jersey next week.

It’s great – if slightly odd – to be revisiting the score again. The last time was for the recording of the 21st Anniversary Concert on Radio 2… and even THAT was a few years ago. But when you do a show for so long, it is fairly ingrained in your brain, so hopefully (with a few lyric checks!) it should all come flooding back.

And as it happens, my pal JP is doing his thang with a group right here in St Pancras – a promenade performance of “Drive Ride Walk” (www.driveridewalk.com) – which was a pleasant surprise!

See – I stand by what I said – I like the new St Pancras!
