Willemijn Verkaik In Concert at the Ambassador's Theatre
Star of the West End Playing Solo Concert for One Evening Only at the Home of Stomp
Over the years the West End has seen an array of well known performers, famous for appearing in the capital’s most popular musicals, take to the stage for concert shows that celebrate the musical numbers that have made their names. The likes of Idina Menzel and others have taken to the stage alongside bands and orchestras to provide those with theatre tickets stand-out renditions of familiar tunes.
With that in mind audiences will flock for the chance to see the latest West End star putting on such a performance and this is set to be Willemijn Verkaik, who will play a solo show at the Ambassador’s Theatre in August 2015 with a live band backing up her impressive vocals.
The night will also feature special guests, though they have not yet been announced at the time of writing. By the end of the evening those with theatre tickets will have heard renditions of some of the best known songs from the world of musical theatre.
Willemijn Verkaik has appeared in a range of shows around the world, some in London’s West End and on Broadway and others in her native Netherlands, meaning she is familiar with a wealth of the capital’s shows and songs. Her best known part is that of Elphaba in Wicked, a role she portrayed in the West End at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in 2013, though she has also played the part in New York and Germany. Her other credits include Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown at the Playhouse Theatre, Aida in Germany, Elisabeth in Switzerland and We Will Rock You in Germany.
It won’t be the last time that audiences will see a West End star perform a solo show in the capital, but it will be a rare opportunity to see an international performer take to the Ambassador’s Theatre, the ongoing home of Stomp in the West End.
Willemijn Verkaik In Concert is a one-evening production that runs at the Ambassador’s Theatre on Tuesday 25th August 2015.
