Crazy Coqs Presents Ray Shell in BACK 2 - BLACK II, 27-28 June
"Ray Shell has been a fixture in West End musicals for more than 30 years now, from Starlight Express (in which he created the role of Rusty in its 1984 stage premiere) to The Bodyguard. But there's nothing rusty about his thrilling vocal talents, or the ease of the sparky rapport he establishes with an audience. As he takes occasional neat swigs from a bottle of honey, his voice sounds as if it has been coated in the warm, sweet flavour." - The Stage
"Ray Shell has the kind of voice that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Powerful, smooth and seemingly effortless, with an amazing range, it envelops you. This show is a gem." - Everything Theatre
Returning to the West End and making his debut at Crazy Coqs, is Ray Shell with his show Back 2 - Black II for which he has received a clutch of 4 and 5 star reviews. Featuring Ray's distinctive interpretation of well-known songs from musicals Sweeney Todd to Miss Saigon and current Broadway hit Kinky Boots, peppered with songs from his pop career, as well as a few new surprises.
It is an amazing musical journey; an evening of storytelling, song and sensational entertainment from the "Soul Man of the West End."
Ray Shell's West End career has embraced starring roles in many of the greatest musicals of the past 30 years, from Hair and Starlight Express, Five Guys Named Moe to The Lion King and The Bodyguard.
