06 Jul The Ultimate Tribute to Moulin Rouge featuring BGT winner Jai McDowall comes to Colchester
Come What May, a tribute to the greatest movie musicals of all time including Moulin Rouge, Rocketman, The Greatest Showman, A Star is Born and Burlesque, will play at the Mercury Theatre Colchester on Saturday 25 September as part of a major UK tour this autumn.
Featuring the sensational BGT winner Jai McDowall alongside a cast of West End theatre performers, the musical extravaganza is a guaranteed ‘Spectacular, Spectacular’ evening of much-loved songs, pure glitz and old-time glamour.
Travel back in time as the children of the revolution take you into the sexy, disreputable and glamorous underworld of Paris at the Moulin Rouge. Have a musical peep into the flamboyant world of Elton John, journey on into the imagination of the original showman P.T Barnum before heading to the bright lights of Los Angeles as well as the kitsch glamour of Sunset Boulevard’s Burlesque Lounge.
Come What May is packed with timeless classics from Moulin Rouge including Come What May, Your Song, Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend, Roxanne and Lady Marmalade as well as hits from other iconic movie musicals from Come Alive, Saturday Night’s Alright and Shallow to Show Me How You Burlesque.
This all-singing, all-dancing show is an unforgettable combination of dreams, adventure and above all – love!
