The initial line-up for the 2019 West End Live has been revealed.
The two-day free celebration of West End musicals will return for its 15th year in June, with shows performing live in Trafalgar Square in front of thousands of people.
This year, the festival will be held on 22 and 23 June, with shows featured including the Olivier Award-winning Come From Away and & Juliet, which will run in the West End at the end of the year.
An annual fixture for theatregoers, the event sees leading West End productions perform classic numbers live in front of audiences, all for free. Unlike a normal show, audiences are actively encouraged to sing along. Further acts, presenters and performance schedules will be announced soon, with the whole weekend BSL interpreted by Sue MacLaine and Marco Nardi.
