West End 'marvel' Marisha Wallace is heading to Leeds: Here's how to get tickets
One of the West End and Broadway’s most instantly recognisable voices and beloved leading ladies is heading to Leeds as part of her first ever UK tour.
Marisha Wallace - the sensational star of such smash-hit shows as Dreamgirls, Waitress, Aladdin, The Book of Mormon and very soon Hairspray - will play a series of unmissable theatre shows in March 2020.
They include a date at the Leeds City Varieties on Monday, March 16, 2020.
Marisha, who has just completed a critically-acclaimed run in West End hit Waitress and, starred alongside Will Smith in Disney’s big screen summer blockbuster Aladdin, said she was excited to be heading out on her first ever UK tour.
“I fell in love with the UK from the moment I first I stepped on stage here. The warmth and love I’ve received from audiences has been really special and I cannot wait to head out to play theatres around the UK - it’s going to be amazing.”
Following her debut UK tour Marisha will take on the iconic role of Motormouth Maybelle in the eagerly-awaited West End return of Hairspray alongside Michael Ball.
Marisha - whose power-packed new single ‘Fight Like A Woman’ is out now - was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina. But the small town never held down her big city dreams. From glittering New York, her unbelievable talent has taken her around the world.
On Broadway, Marisha starred in shows including Disney's Aladdin, The Book of Mormon and Something Rotten and then here, in the UK, as Effie White in the stellar West End hit Dreamgirls before following this up as Becky in the unmissable Waitress.
Described by The New York Post as “a marvel”, Marisha’s spine-tingling rendition of ‘And I Am Telling You’ from Dreamgirls has quite simply to be seen and heard to be believed.
Her debut tour is presented by concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor.
Ben Hatton, director of theatre touring for Cuffe and Taylor, said: “Marisha Wallace is an undoubted star of the West End and Broadway and her special talent is one that is rightly winning plaudits on both sides of the Atlantic.
“We are proud to be presenting Marisha’s debut UK tour and we would advise fans of the West End and musical theatre to get their tickets early because these shows are likely to be among the must-see events of 2020.”
