In what must surely be considered a bit of a coup for the Waterside in Sale, spring 2020 brings a mouth-watering chance to see one of the biggest voices in musical theatre up close and personal.Broadway and West End Star Marisha Wallace,who recently starred in the original London cast of Waitress and will be seen next summer alongside Michael Ball in Hairspray, is a genuine diva in all the right senses of the word.
Other credits to her name include Effie White in Dreamgirls, The Book of Mormon, and a crowd-pleasing cameo in the recent live action remake of Disney’s Aladdin (“still I think he’s raaaaaather tasty!”). Now Marisha is heading out on her first-ever UK tour, which opens at the Waterside on Sunday 8 March 2020. Fans can expect to hear the South Carolina-born performer belt out some of her best-loved songs.
She says: “I’m so excited to be heading out on my first ever UK Tour. I fell in love with the UK from the moment I first I stepped on stage here. The warmth and love I’ve received from audiences has been really special and I cannot wait to head out to play theatres around the UK – it’s going to be amazing.”
Following her debut UK tour Marisha will take on the iconic role of Motormouth Maybelle in the eagerly-awaited West End return of Hairspray alongside Michael Ball. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 1 November at 10am further info can be found here.
