Death Note The Musical

Death Note concert casting announced including Dean John-Wilson, Frances Mayli McCann, Joaquin Pedro Valdes

The producers of the forthcoming concert version of hit show Death Note The Musical have revealed casting.

The cast will include Frances Mayli McCann (Bonnie & Clyde) as Misa, with Dean John-Wilson (Aladdin) as ‘L’, and Joaquin Pedro Valdes (Disney’s The Lion King) as Light.

Two concerts will take place this summer, on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 August 2023, at the London Palladium.

The musical has great credentials, with music by Frank Wildhorn (Bonnie & Clyde, Jekyll & Hyde), lyrics by Jack Murphy (The Civil War) and book by Ivan Menchell (Bonnie & Clyde, The Nanny).

Directed and choreographed by Nick Winston, the wider creative team includes Associate Director and Choreographer Alex Sarmiento, Costume Designer Kimie Nakano; Musical Supervisor Katy Richardson; Musical Director Chris Ma; Orchestrator Jason Howland; Designer Justin Williams; Lighting Designer Ben Cracknell; Sound Designer Ben Harrison; Casting Harry Blumenau; Artwork by Rebecca Pitt Creative; Producers Carter Dixon McGill Productions and Indie Theatrical.

The show is based on the best-selling “Death Note” Japanese manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, and had its world premiere in Tokyo Japan in 2015. It has subsequently enjoyed three sell-out seasons in Korea.

The story centres on Light Yagami, a bright but dissatisfied high school student in Tokyo comes across a discarded notebook owned by Ryuk, a mythological god of death. Discovering he can kill anyone by just writing their names in the supernatural notebook, Light takes justice into his own hands by filling the notebook with names of the nation’s most wanted criminals. But a detective only known as “L” is soon tracking him down…

The concerts are produced by Carter Dixon McGill Productions (Chess in Concert, Treason the Musical in Concert) and Indie Theatrical.
