Actor and musician Declan Bennett has successfully maintained dual, often intersecting careers as a singer-songwriter and musical theatre performer. He's had chart hits both with band Point Break and as a solo artist, and has tackled several iconic roles, including Roger in a US tour and Broadway run of Rent, Guy in the UK premiere of Once, and now Jesus in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Jesus Christ Superstar. This new production at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre celebrates 45 years since the show first opened, and the intimate, gig-like experience - with performers playing instruments - promises to be very different to the recent arena tour.

BWW Reviews: TO DO. TO BE - The Music of Tim Prottey-JonesBWW Reviews: TO DO. TO BE - The Music of Tim Prottey-Jones
by Jenny Ell - Oct 2, 2015

Tim Prottey-Jones most notably came to people's attention when he was a finalist on ITV's Superstar whereby Andrew Lloyd Webber used his previously successful reality format to find his 'Jesus' for a UK arena tour. After being eliminated far too early from the competition, there was a conciliation when he was offered the understudy for Judas' (played by Tim Minchin) in the show.  Although this gave him a platform and the recognition he deserved, his career was blossoming before the competition even started. Prottey-Jones is now performing in Kinky Boots in London, following a run in the successful West End production of Once. He excels in all areas of performance; a multi-talented vocalist, musician, composer and producer - as showcased on this, his third studio album 'To Do. To Be'. (more...)
