Katherine Jenkins & Alfie Boe to star in Carousel
Katherine Jenkins will be making her West End debut in 2017 as she takes on the role of Julie Jordan in Carousel. The play will be opening at ENO’s London Coliseum and it will also star Alfie Boe in the role of Billy Bigelow.
The classic musical is a romantic story tracking the tragic New England love story of carousel barker Billy and naive mill worker Julie.
The musical first opened in 1945 on Broadway and was later made into a Hollywood film starring Gordon McRae and Shirley Jones. Famous songs from the production include ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, ‘Soliloquy’ and ‘Mister Snow’.
Although this is Jenkin’s stage debut, Alfie Bow has appeared on the West End and Broadway as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and in Gary Barlow’s Finding Neverland in Broadway.
