Daniel Bedingfield and Heidi Range to make West End debut alongside David Essex

Well this is a thing that’s happening!

Daniel Bedingfield and former Sugababes popstar Heidi Range will make their West End debut in Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds.

The new production will open for a limited run at the Dominion Theatre next month, starring Jimmy Nail as Parson Nathaniel (also his West End debut).

Joining them will be West End stars Michael Praed (The Sound of Music) as George Herbert, Madalena Alberto (Evita) as Carrie and David Essex as The Voice of Humanity. Liam Neeson will make an onscreen appearance as The Journalist.

Completing one of the starriest casts we’ve seen debut on the West End in some time will be the legendary David Essex – returning to The War of the Worlds for the first time since he recorded the original double album.


Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds, produced by Bill Kenwright, features the iconic score played live on stage by his Black Smoke Band alongside ULLAdubULLA string orchestra.
