Award winning singer and actress Lea Salonga - best known for her Tony & Olivier Award winning role in Miss Saigon - is to join Il Divo on their UK autumn tour.
'Il Divo - A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs Of Broadway Live' is to see the group kick off their UK leg of the world tour on October 18, in support of their new compilation of Broadway tracks 'A Musical Affair'.
“I am thrilled to be joining Il Divo as they continue their Musical Affair tour worldwide,” says Salonga. “Having such a passion for musical theater since an early age myself, I cannot imagine a more talented group to join forces with to share these timeless songs with audiences of all ages. And it doesn’t hurt that they are so handsome to look at too.”
Sébastien of the group said: "We're excited to be bringing our brand new show with the incredible Lea Salonga 'home' to the UK."
He continued: "Delving into the world of Broadway repertoire is new territory for us, and being able to create a wonderful new show with such an established and celebrated star of many musicals is such an honour."
