From factory worker to starring as The Phantom in London's West End for Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, and an Olivier Award nominee for his performance in Lloyd Webber’s The Beautiful Game, David Shannon has played the leading roles in some of the West End and Broadway’s most iconic musicals, including Les Misérables (Jean Valjean), Matilda (Miss Trunchbull), Sweeney Todd (Sweeney Todd), Jesus Christ Superstar (Jesus and Judas), Miss Saigon (Chris), and most recently, Kevin T in the original London company of Come From Away.

His musical career began in amateur dramatics in Ireland - performing a wide variety of roles in regional theatres. His first professional break came at the age of 21 when he won a role in the touring production of Les Misérables in Dublin and Edinburgh.
