Lead cast announced for Lord of the Dance
Lead casting has been announced for Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance - Dangerous Games which begins performances at the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End from 10 October 2015 to 3 January 2016.
The production recently played at the Dominion Theatre, ending there on 5 September 2015 after six months, and also enjoyed a run at the London Palladium where it opened to mixed reviews on 3 September 2014.
James Keegan, Morgan Comer, Cathal Keaney, and Fergal Keaney will all share the role of 'Lord of the Dance'. Sophie Evans and Rachael O'Connor will share the role of 'Erin the Goddess'.
Based on Irish folklore, this is the classic tale of Good vs. Evil, expressed through the universal language of dance. It's the story of the Little Spirit, who travels through time to help the Lord of the Dance protect his people from the challenge of Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord. As this dark power challenges our hero, the adventure draws you into a mythical universe of love, danger, and desire, created by an orchestrated combination of precision dancing, state of the art lighting and pyrotechnics.
Sophie Evans was runner-up on the BBC series 'Over the Rainbow' in 2010, and played alternate Dorothy in selected performances of 'The Wizard of Oz' at the London Palladium in 2011.
Rachael O’Connor was part of Kylie Minogue’s team on series 3 of The Voice UK on BBC One. She made her West End debut in Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games at the London Palladium in 2014.
