One of the West End’s biggest stars heads to Feinstein’s/54 Below for one performance only. Daniel Koek‘s West End Story will play the venue on July 19, 2017, at 7 p.m.
Koek is an international artist who has made a name for himself in London’s West End, as well as Australia and some of Europe’s greatest performance venues. After 180 theatres, 7 leading ladies and a rather worn suitcase, the acclaimed tenor arrives in New York City to present an enthralling evening of songs and stories from the last decade.
Life has been hectic for Koek as he’s undertaken leading roles in some of the world’s biggest productions including West Side Story, Chess and South Pacific. He made his way through nine grueling auditions to earn the iconic role of Jean Valjean in the West End production of Les Misérables, and at 32 this made him one of the youngest m to have played the part. To much anticipation, he also has just recorded his second studio album HiGH.
An evening not to be missed, Koek’s show charts his transformation from SA Opera’s Young Artist 2003 to one of Australia and the UK’s most notable leading men. A sung through timeline of Dan’s career highlighting how a country boy with a big dream made it to the top! He will be joined by special guests Alicia Krakauer, Tam Mutu, and Betsy Struxness (Hamilton, Matilda).
