Stephen Gately Is Joseph at New London Theatre

News   Stephen Gately Is Joseph at New London Theatre Andrew Lloyd Webber's music will be back on stage in March when Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat arrives, as expected, at the New London Theatre.

Home to Cats for 21 years, the New London is currently host to South African song-and-dance show Umoja. Stephen Gately, who has been starring in Joseph in Liverpool since mid-December, will be a big box-office draw if, as expected, he heads the cast when the show opens in London at some time in March — details to be confirmed.

Joseph has been a great role for a number of young singing stars, from Aled Jones to Donny Osmond to Stephen Gately himself. Gately sprang to fame as a member of boy band Boyzone, and made more headlines when he announced that he was gay — paving the way, later, for Will Young.
