Daniel joins Gina Beck (Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables), David Burt (Kiss Me Kate, The Merchant of Venice, The Beggars People, Plague Over England) and Eve Polycarpou (In The Heights, Mother Courage, Jacques Brel - National Theatre, 1970s ) in this acclaimed new production of the hit revue Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris at the Charing Cross Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Often haunting, sometimes funny, heart- wrenching and vividly poetic, the songs of Jacques Brel explore the human condition through honest storytelling, with themes of joy and sorrow, love and loss, war and peace and life and death.

Directed by Andrew Keates, whose acclaimed production of Dessa Rose has just finished a sellout run at Trafalgar Studios, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris is a musical revue of the greatest works by one of the most prolific, Belgian, singer-songwriters of all time. With what are regarded as the definitive English translations of his works by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman and fresh orchestral arrangements by Eric Svejcar from the award-winning 2006 Off Broadway production, this is not to be missed!

Love Story

Posted 18th May 2014

[« back to news]

Daniel is soon to be starring in Bolton Octagon's new production of the musical Love Story.

Love Story is a ‘chamber musical’ with music by Howard Goodall and lyrics by Stephen Clark and Howard Goodall. It is inspired by Erich Segal’s best-selling novel and subsequent 1970’s smash-hit film, which is widely regarded as one of the most romantic and moving films of all time.

Two worlds collide when spirited Italian-American Jennifer Cavilleri and wealthy, privileged Harvard Alumni Oliver Barrett IV (played by Daniel) fall in love. The pair, whose backgrounds could not be more different, are united by love. It is a love that endures in the face of adversity, through family opposition to their marriage and devastating personal tragedy. This is their story.

Playing opposite Daniel in the role of Jennifer Cavilleri will be Lauren Samuels. Lauren was a finalist in the Andrew Lloyd-Webber BBC series Over the Rainbow and made her West End debut as Sandy in Grease. She is currently performing in Water Babies, a new musical based on the novel by Charles Kingsley, at Leicester Curve.

Directed by Elizabeth Newman and with an ensemble of actor musicians, this proves to be a beautiful and very moving production.
