Britain's Got Talent Winner Sings Classic Musical Songs
If you love musicals then you'd be 'mad' to miss out on seeing this special tribute to all the best that the West End and Broadway stage has got to offer. Former Britain's Got Talent winner Jai McDowall and musical theatre star Michael Courtney combine to take audiences on a whistle stop tour from the heart of London's theatre land to the glitz of Broadway in New York. The critically acclaimed Mad About the Musicals, which will be visiting the Lichfield Garrick theatre on October 23, aims to celebrate the very best songs from the shows that everyone knows and loves.

The talented cast of Mad About the Musicals sets out to evoke the true spirit of the stage, with outstanding vocals and top notch West End musicians coming together to deliver the very best show in town. The evening promises something for everyone with a host of favourite numbers from the likes of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Boublil & Schonberg. Added together that can only result in show-stopping tunes from hit musicals such as Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Chicago, Miss Saigon, Wicked, and Chess.

Out in front of the stage will be Jai McDowall and Michael Courtney, who will be joined during the two hours of memorable musical numbers by seasoned musical theatre singers Rosanne Priest and Kerry Whiteside. They, in turn, will be supported by the show's very own Mad About The Musicals West End band. Jai rose to fame when he won the fifth series of Britain's Got Talent in June 2011. His debut album, Believe, was released just six months later on the same day as his single, With or Without You. He has since performed on the LIVE final of China's Got Talent and performed for royalty at the Queen's Jubilee as well as performing concerts across the UK. His latest single, I Begin Again, is available for worldwide download on iTunes & Amazon. Michael is best known for his musical theatre vocals having toured extensively throughout the UK in numerous musicals over the past 25 years. He has also produced and directed the UK tours of Mad About The Musicals, as well as Waterloo, Shakin All Over, Its D'Lovely, A Night Of Musicals, Love Changes Everything, and nearly 40 UK pantomimes.
