West End star Rachel Tucker popped into The Theatre Cafe earlier today to have a chat with Nicky Sweetland about her upcoming concert at Shoreditch Town Hall on 17 November.
Joined by a dynamic nine-piece band, Rachel will perform with a choir of fifty up and coming child stars from the Stagebox Musical Theatre Choir, providing all of the necessary ingredients to create an especially magical evening.
Led by MD Kris Rawlinson, Rachel will showcase some of the musical theatre classics she has become famous for and material from her recent tour, as well as brand new material from her ‘On The Road’ sessions.
Rachel Tucker rose to fame as a finalist on the BBC One show ‘I’d Do Anything’, winning heaps of praise from both Cameron Mackintosh and Andrew Lloyd Webber, subsequently embarking on a nine month run on Broadway as lead role ‘Elphaba’ in the smash hit musical Wicked, more recently reprising the role in the West End as part of Wicked’s special 10th anniversary cast.
Rachel received critical acclaim in a range of roles in some of the West End and Broadway’s best shows, including creating the role of Meg Dawson on Broadway in rock icon Sting’s musicals Last Ship, which was lauded as one of New York Times top ten performance of 2014.
