Principal cast announced for Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games
Michael Flatley's West End dance show will feature runners up from Over the Rainbow and The Voice UK
Evans and O'Connor will share the role of Erin the Goddess. Evans was a runner up in the BBC's Over the Rainbow in 2010 and then played Dorothy in selected performances of The Wizard of Oz at the Palladium in 2011. O'Connor was in Kylie Minogue's group in series three of The Voice UK and starred in Lord of the Dance in 2014.
The show is staged by Irish-American dancer Flatley, who originally wanted to create an Irish dance piece for big arenas. The story focuses on a Lord of the Dance who has to fight against a dark lord, trying to take over Planet Ireland. The show features holographs, dancing robots, acrobats and has a score composed by Gerard Fahy.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games opens at the Playhouse Theatre from 10 October 2015 until 3 January 2016.
