Beyond the Barricade features past principal performers from Les Miserables and delivers over two hours of songs from the best musicals of the West End and Broadway, ending of course with a stunning finale from Les Miserables. This brand new show for 2019 will include many of the best numbers that have made Beyond the Barricade the most popular musical theatre concert in the UK and includes songs from The Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Hamilton, The Lion King, West Side Story, Jesus Christ Superstar, Chicago, and many more.

The 20th Anniversary concert features David Fawcett (Valjean) Andy Reiss ( Enjolras & Resident Director for the National Tour of Les Miserables) Katie Leeming (Eponine) and Poppy Tierney (Cosette), together with a live band who capture the feel of the original orchestrations of the chosen musicals. To this day every musical note is still played and sung live – very rare indeed. Beyond the Barricade gives musical theatre songs a bold concert format treatment – but with the conviction and intention to deliver the material as if the audience are watching the original performance, recreating West End and Broadway hit songs with amazing authenticity.
The show has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and New Zealand and is playing just three dates in Ireland, with performances in Castlebar on 19th and Galway on 20th September prior to The Helix.
The vocalists in Beyond the Barricade have all played principal roles in Les Miserables, both in the West End and the National Tours. Andy Reiss and David Fawcett devised ‘Beyond the Barricade’ after appearing in the Manchester and London casts of Les Misérables. David played the lead role of Jean Valjean in both of these productions, and Andy played most of the male characters, including Enjolras and Valjean. Andy still remains the only person to be the shows Resident Director, and perform in it at the same time.
Also on stage is Katie Leeming, who joined Beyond the Barricade after playing the lead role of Eponine in the West End production of Les Miserables, was an ensemble vocalist in the Les Miserables movie. Completing the quartet is Poppy Tierney who played Cosette in Les Miserables, as well as other major West End leading roles such as Mary Poppins and Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.

Andy, David, Katie and Poppy also featured in the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert, staged at the O2 Arena, London.
