Michael Ball

West End favourite Michael Ball recently starred in the West End revival of Aspects of Love at the Lyric Theatre in London.

For 30 years Michael has been starring in musical theatre productions in the West End and on Broadway winning critical acclaim and awards for his stage work and recording career. He is a double Olivier Award winner, multi-platinum recording artist and radio and TV presenter.

In what seems like an impossibly long and successful career he has moved from the hot young star of Les Mis and Aspects of Love, to comic master in shows like Hairspray, to mass murderer in Sweeney Todd.

Michael Ball continues to exceed all expectations of what Britain’s leading man of musical theatre should be about.
