Fleeshman's musical credits include Damsel in Distress (Chichester Festival Theatre), Urinetown (St. James Theatre) and Legally Blonde (Savoy Theatre), in addition to Ghost which he originated at the West End's Piccadilly Theatre before reprising it at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne. On TV he has played Craig Harris in "Coronation Street."

Caulfield has appeared on Broadway in An Inspector Calls and Chicago, the latter of which he also did in the West End.
