Roger Wright, third place finalist in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ITV1 show Superstar and the original Simba in The Lion King, and star of Dancing the Streets and Thriller Live teams up with fellow West End star Paul Hazel, from Dancing In the Streets, Avenue Q, and Five Guys Named Moe, in their exciting new show, You Can Do It.
Due to the sold out success of the show’s premiere at Leicester Square Theatre on October 7, You Can Do It returns for a second show on Sunday, November 4, with further dates to be announced.
You Can Do It is based on an original story by Wright, who was inspired to write, produce, direct and star in this show with Hazel, following the public’s phenomenal response to his performances on Superstar. The feel-good show features a live band, and is filled with a mix of soul classics, jazz, pop, rock, rhythm and blues, showcasing songs from legendary artists such as Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis Jr, as well as Earth Wind and Fire, Whitesnake and many more.
The show stars Roger Wright and Paul Hazel as Brothers Bertie and Edwin Lightfoot who are stuck in the 70s, dreaming about what could have been when they had the world at their feet as singing sensations, ‘The Lightfoot Brothers’. Then one day, their father ‘Pappa Lightfoot’ sends them a heavenly command to put on the show of their lives... this is when the party really begins!
Roger declared: “I came off such a high from Superstar after being blown away by the audience’s response, I just wanted to keep the momentum and feel good factor going. I felt writing You Can Do It was the best way of doing it.”
Info: You Can Do It is at Leicester Square Theatre on Sunday, November 4 at 7.30pm
