COLM WILKINSON In Concert

Thursday 13th & Friday 14th June, 8pm ( University Concert Hall, Limerick)

Bring Him Home…

One of Broadway’s most distinctive voices, Ireland’s Colm Wilkinson is best known as the original Jean Valjean and the Phantom, roles he created and embodied in London, Toronto and New York productions of Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera.

He played Jean Valjean in the 10th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall (1995) and has gained many new fans since his guest appearances on both the 25th Anniversary Concerts of Les Misérable at the O2 London (2010) and Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall (2011).

Colm plays the Bishop of Digne in the new Les Misérables movie alongside Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe.

“I was delighted to be asked to play the role in the movie version of the greatest musical ever written… Twenty eight years ago as the original Jean Valjean I started an extraordinary journey with the Bishop of Digne setting me on the long road of reincarnation and salvation. It seems to me as I now take on the role of the Bishop that the journey has ended and I have come full circle”. Colm Wilkinson

Colm Wilkinson in Concert is an evening of music and stories. Theatre favourites such as ‘Music of the Night’, ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ and his signature song ‘Bring Him Home’ anchor the show which also includes definitive Irish classics such as ‘Danny Boy’ and ‘Whiskey in the Jar’. Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ and The Animals ‘House of the Rising Sun’ add another dimension to a programme rich in musical theatre and showcasing the complete depth, range and variety of Wilkinson’s talent.

Colm Wilkinson & his band – Siobhán Pettit & Áine Whelan, guest vocalists
