The Dress Circle: A Spotlight on Colm Wilkinson
We’re celebrating the career of Irish actor Colm Wilkinson on this week’s Dress Circle (3/15 7:00 p.m.). Although he’s primarily known for his starring role as Jean Valjean in the fantastically successful “Les Miserables,” we’ve known his work from his appearance as C.T. Wilkinson on the concept recording of “Evita” as Che. We’ll also be sampling some of Wilkinson’s recordings including the concept recording of “Jekyl and Hyde” and his solo CD titled “Stage Heroes” (including songs from “Chess” and “West Side Story”) as well as a sample of his work as the Phantom in Lloyd-Webber’s long-running hit.
