Brief Encounter With … Victor Romero EvansDate: 11 May 2010
Victor Romero Evans has been in the entertainment business for over 30 years as an actor, singer, songwriter, dancer and choreographer, and is currently starring in the new tour of reggae musical The Harder They Come, which opens at the Nottingham Playhouse this week (14 May 2010).
The Harder They Come was in the West End at the Playhouse Theatre in 2008 following sell-out seasons at both the Theatre Royal Stratford East and the Barbican. The national tour starts in Nottingham on May 14th.
How does it feel to be reviving The Harder They Come?
It feels great to be involved once again in The Harder They Come's musical journey, it’s a real joy for me to be singing and hearing the classic tunes which are in the show. I also feel that due to the success of the show in its London , Toronto and Miami runs, it’s vitally important that people in England get a chance to enjoy the show. As we know there isn't a plethora of Black British musicals, so when we do have one which people enjoy its only correct that it should be toured in Britain.
Has the show changed much since its West End run?
