PREVIEW; Beyond The Barricade St David's Hall, Cardiff.

A STAGE show which recreates West End and Broadway hits is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a tour which is heading to Cardiff.

Beyond The Barricade features a cast of past principal performers from Les Miserables on tour throughout the UK and Europe with some of the greatest songs in musical theatre.

Starring Andy Reiss, David Fawcett, Katie Leeming and Rebecca Vere, together with their own ensemble of musicians, this new production reflects Beyond The Barricade's 15-year history, and features songs from The Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Wicked, The Lion King, West Side Story, Evita, Blood Brothers, and many more.

The vocalists in Beyond The Barricade have all played principal roles in Les Miserables, both in the West End and the national tours, so this new anniversary tour will also contain a new extended section devoted to the iconic musical, which was last year turned into a film starring Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Russell Crowe as Javert.

Reiss and Fawcett devised Beyond The Barricade after appearing in the Manchester and London casts of Les Miserables - Fawcett played Valjean in both productions and Reiss portrayed most of the male characters, including Enjolras and Valjean.

Beyond The Barricade is at St David's Hall, Cardiff, on February 15 at 7.30pm. Call 029 2087 8444.
