HAYDON ESHUN THRILLER LIVE

It’s very tiring because I go from one song to another to another — but that’s a great moment for me because I get to dance and sing full out. I think there’s very few of us who actually sound like him, but it’s very natural to sound like him singing his songs because he was very percussive and very soft. We try to keep similar to his arrangements and how he would sing the tracks but you put your own voice and style on it. Skip to main content. I think that sets us apart from a lot of other shows. I love singing his songs, it’s a gift. Both Reece and Haydn would describe themselves as artists and performers before musical theatre actors, and this distinction helps them both bond alongside other members of the company.

It helps that we have such an athletic team of dancers — they are going hell for leather every night, flipping across the stage — If anyone doesn’t know what to expect that triggers it and then they get it, it’s good that it happens so early.

That’s what sets us apart from other shows, it makes people feel like they’re part of what’s going on on stage.

Tuesday, 7 February, I feel like being an artist myself it made me return to where I started, performing live in front of an audience, singing great Michael Jackson songs and performing to audiences. Haydn and I are joined by one of the show’s newest performers Thirller Bahia who talks about joining the show as one of its youngest cast members.

For Reece the West End can’t quite compete with the appeal of the music industry and performing and producing his own musical. The audience a lot of time tell me it’s different each time, I think it’s evolving and ahydon better and better as the years go on.

Perhaps you’ll first think of The Mousetrap at the St Martin’s Theatre lice is not only London’s longest running play but the longest running theatrical performance in the world.

I think that sets us apart from a lot of other shows. For me that’s a massive compliment. I love singing his songs, it’s a gift. For now however both Reece and Haydn are just delighted to be performing such fantastic music to appreciative fans night after night in London. Thriller Live remains unique in the West End as it’s not technically either book musical or jukebox musical. It’s very much a big party and a celebration.

Unlike other shows in the West End, Thriller Live actively encourages audience involvement, and that’s something that both Haydn and Reece agree makes the production so special. I think there’s very few of us who actually sound like him, but it’s very natural to sound like him singing his songs because he was very percussive and very soft.

Just as the show itself prepares to officially celebrate another birthday in the West End, Haydon himself has cause to celebrate as this evening’s performance will mark his 2, in Thriller Live which is believed to be the longest run by a lead role in a West End musical.

For now I love this show so haven’t thought about anything else, but it’s opened my eyes to that world. This has opened my eyes — I’d love to do other things. I’ve always loved that sound a style myself so I feel like we’re heavily influenced in his sound hadyon the way he sang — it’s hard not to sound like him!

We try to keep similar to his arrangements and how he lie sing the tracks but thrkller put your own voice and style on it.

Unless you do it you won’t know.

I want to get more in acting, it’s all about challenging yourself. Because the show changes pretty much yearly, songs, costume, choreography it kind of keeps it fresh. Because it’s such an energetic show you just want to go out and have fun, and this is a show where you can and that’s why it’s lasted.

This past weekend Thriller Live celebrated its 3, performance at the Lyric Theatre where it smashed the long-held haydno of the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar to become the West End’s 15th longest running musical. Fshun get told I sound like Michael Jackson a lot when I’m not in the building, but it’s important that it’s not an impersonation show, it’s a celebration of his music.
