Musical Theatre’s favourite Joseph, Lee Mead, returns to the stage this summer with Some Enchanted Evening, a 10 date concert tour kicking off this July.
Lee will turn back the musical clock to the golden age of Hollywood and celebrate some of the classic songs that that have become a part of musical heritage.
Special guest on the tour will be Amanda Henderson who stars alongside Lee in Casualty and who has appeared in Les Miserables and Oliver in London’s West End.
Among the set list for the show will be Some Enchanted Evening from the 1949 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific, Singin’ In The Rain, the 1937 Rodgers & Hart Where Or When which featured in the 1939 MGM film Babes in Arms, the Jules Steyn/Sammy Cahn song I Fall In Love Too Easily from the movie Anchors Aweigh, and I’ll See You In My Dreams.
Lee shot to fame in 2007 when he won TV’s Any Dream Will Do and was cast in the lead role of the 2007 revival of Joseph’s Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
After 600 performances, the actor went to New York where he studied at the Lee Strasburg Institute before heading back to London’s West End for starring roles in Wicked and Legally Blonde.
Lee also appeared in West End Men which played at London’s Vaudeville Theatre and toured around the UK and overseas.
He made his debut in BBC One’s Casualty in March 2014 playing Lofty Chiltern and was shortlisted in the 2015 National Television Awards as Favourite Newcomer.
