Rent 20th Anniversary Concert: Kerry Ellis, Rory Taylor
Celebrating 20 years since it's first staged performance, West End and Broadway leading lady Kerry Ellis stars with runner up of ITV's Superstar Rory Taylor in this iconic concert of the smash-hit musical Rent.
Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this musical has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, the show follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
The show is suitable for ages 16 and over.
Kerry is recognised as the leading lady of West End and Broadway musicals, with a number of starring roles in London, New York, and around the world.
She has achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca with her debut album Anthems. Kerry is best known for her roles including the original ‘Meat’ in Queen and Ben Elton’s musical, We Will Rock You; the first British actress to play Elphaba in Wicked in the West End as well as on Broadway; and Ellen in Miss Saigon.
Other leading role credits include Grizabella in Cats at the London Palladium, for whichKerry won a What’s on Stage Award; Nancy in Oliver! Fantine in Les Misérables, and most recently, Sara in the European premier of Murder Ballad in London’s West End.
Her chart-topping debut album ‘Anthems’ was produced by Brian May and gave the partnership their first taste of chart success, also collaborating on Kerry’s first major CD Wicked in Rock. This partnership triggered a highly successful touring career.
