“Colm Wilkinson’s show mesmerizes; a 5 out of 5 performance!” - Times Colonist

Tickets to the premiere Canadian engagement of COLM WILKINSON IN CONCERT: BROADWAY AND BEYOND are currently on-sale with only a limited number of VIP seats remaining!

COLM WILKINSON IN CONCERT: BROADWAY AND BEYOND, on stage at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, August 12 – 13, 2011, is a showpiece of Colm Wilkinson’s acclaimed work as a thespian and musician featuring classics including “The Music of the Night,” “Tennessee Waltz” and his timeless rendition of “Bring Him Home.”

Between musicals, solo albums, compilations and singles, the Dublin tenor’s vocals have been recorded on over 60 record titles and counting, with his latest successful release, Broadway and Beyond The Concert Songs. Following its recent sold-out tour in Ireland, COLM WILKINSON IN CONCERT: BROADWAY AND BEYOND is an evening of song and stories from the award-winning actor’s prodigious work on stages in London, New York, Toronto and abroad.

Over 20 years ago I had the great pleasure of meeting and working with Colm when we both moved to Toronto to work on The Phantom of the Opera. When we created Dancap Productions four years ago I began looking for an opportunity to work with Colm again, and I am very pleased that we will present someone I so truly admire. A giant talent!” Peter Lamb, Dancap Producer & Executive Vice President.

Wilkinson’s career began in the 1970s performing in his native Ireland with modernist Irish band, The Action. Almost simultaneously, his musical theatre career began to take off when he performed the role of Judas Iscariot in the Dublin and London productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, and the part of Che Guevara on the original concept album of the musical Evita.

In 1985, Wilkinson originated the role of Jean Valjean in The Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Les Misérables in London's West End. In 1987, the show made its way to Broadway, accompanied by Wilkinson’s original Valjean, where it garnered 12 Tony Award® nominations and eight wins. In 1989, he relocated his family to Toronto to take on the title role in the new Canadian premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera at the Pantages Theatre (now named Canon Theatre) playing the role for four and a half years in over 1,650 performances and for 3.5 million theatergoers. He has resided in Toronto ever since!

“Colm Wilkinson has an engaging personality and stage presence. Acting as master of ceremonies he beguiles with banter, amusing anecdotes and clean light-hearted jokes. But, of course, the voice is the main attraction and sounds as fresh and as powerful as ever. – Irish Independent
