The one-night concert returns with musical theatre stars singing songs they would normally be unable to

Sell-out concert West End Recast is returning to the stage for a second night next month at the Phoenix Theatre starring people from the world of musical theatre including Cynthia Erivo, Fra Fee, Julie Atherton and Nathan Amzi.

The concert, which will be held on 9 November, allows the performers to sing songs from roles they have always wanted to play but would never be cast in.

It will feature songs from shows including Dreamgirls, Sweeney Todd, Gypsy, Little Shop of Horrors, Grease, Chicago, Oliver, Memphis, Matilda, RENT, Miss Saigon and more.

The cast also includes Sabrina Aloueche, Gina Beck, Daniel Boys, Rebecca Brewer, Nick Holder, Cassidy Janson, Leon Lopez, Michael Matus, Jon Robyns, Katie Rowley Jones, Gareth Snook and Jill Winternitz.

Billed as "ignoring stereotypes and pushing boundaries", West End Recast 2 is directed by Adam Lenson (Ordinary Days, Little Fish, Saturn Returns) with musical supervision and arrangements from Daniel A. Weiss.
