Tuesday, 7 February, I think that sets us apart from a lot of other shows.

I want to get more in acting, it’s all about challenging yourself. Everyone is having a jam and having fun. It’s an extraordinary feat to perform eight times a week in any show, but to do that for over 2, performances is extremely unique for a performer of any discipline. Because it’s such an energetic show you just want to go out and have fun, and this is a show where you can and that’s why it’s lasted. Skip to main content. This has opened my eyes — I’d love to do other things.

It’s very much a big party and a celebration. Haydon Eshuyn in Thriller Live. The audience a lot of time tell me livve different each time, I think it’s evolving and getting better and better as the years go on. I’ve always loved that sound a style myself so I feel like we’re heavily influenced in his sound and the way he sang — it’s hard not to sound like him!

Haydn and I are joined by one of the show’s newest performers Reece Bahia who talks about hhaydon the show as one of its youngest cast members. Subscribe to our newsletter. It helps that we have such an athletic team of dancers — they are going hell for leather every night, flipping across the stage — If anyone doesn’t know what to expect that triggers it and then they get it, it’s good that it happens so early.

Unless you do it you won’t know. He left an amazing legacy and we’re carrying the flag and keeping that memory and the energy of his performance alive. When you’re asked to think of a long-running West End show your mind will immediately flit between the two Cameron Mackintosh ‘megamusicals’ that have graced the West End for over sixty years between them.

Perhaps you’ll first think of The Mousetrap at the St Martin’s Theatre which is not only London’s longest running play but the longest running theatrical performance in the world. This has opened my eyes — I’d love to do other things. In a show that is wall-to-wall eshuj hit songs, each guaranteed to get the audience up on their feet, dancing and singing along, I wonder if it’s possible to pick a highlight of each performance.

Another hit musical graces Shaftesbury Avenue where it has been steadily playing for the past eight years. The beautiful thirller about Michael Jackson songs is that you don’t have to really try and act them — you can get your own feeling out of them when you’re singing, you just tell the story of the song.

Both Reece and Haydn would describe themselves as artists and performers before musical theatre actors, and this distinction helps them both bond alongside other members of the company. I think that sets us apart from a lot of other shows. For Reece the West End can’t haydo compete with the appeal of the music industry and performing and producing his own musical. I was brought esun on Michael Jackson and the Motown era so it was really what I thought to be the most suited to the way I sound and how I sing.

And of course, it’s great music. I think there’s very few of us who actually sound like him, but it’s very natural to sound like him singing his songs because he was very percussive and very soft. Because the show changes pretty much yearly, songs, costume, choreography it kind of keeps it haydkn. I feel like being an artist myself it made me return to where I started, performing live in front of an audience, singing great Michael Jackson songs and performing to audiences.
