Marisha Wallace

Details

One of the West End and Broadway’s most instantly recognisable voices and beloved leading ladies is heading out on her first ever UK tour.

Marisha Wallace – the sensational star of such smash-hit shows as Dreamgirls, Waitress, Aladdin, TheBook of Mormon and very soon Hairspray – will play a series of unmissable theatre shows in March 2020 including Leeds City Varieties.

Marisha has just completed a critically-acclaimed run in West End hit Waitress and, starred alongside Will Smith in Disney’s big screen summer blockbuster Aladdi

Following her debut UK tour Marisha will take on the iconic role of Motormouth Maybelle in the eagerly-awaited West End return of Hairspray alongside Michael Ball.

Marisha – whose power-packed new single ‘Fight Like A Woman’ is out now – was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina. But the small town never held down her big city dreams. From glittering New York, her unbelievable talent has taken her around the world.

On Broadway, Marisha starred in shows including Disney's Aladdin, The Book of Mormon and Something Rotten and then here, in the UK, as Effie White in the stellar West End hit Dreamgirls before following this up as Becky in the unmissable Waitress.

Described by The New York Post as “a marvel”, Marisha’s spine-tingling rendition of ‘And I Am Telling You’ from Dreamgirls has quite simply to be seen and heard to be believed.

Inspired by the likes of the late, great Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald, Marisha’s voice will pull you from your seat and to your feet. She effortlessly infuses jazz, gospel and R&B with a healthy dose of soul that will leave you feeling inspired and uplifted.

Together with her theatre success, this versatile talent has taken on the mainstream music world by performing at the Royal Albert Hall, The London Palladium and Cadogan Hall with such revered international artists as Seal, James Blunt and Gregory Porter.

And Marisha, who released her debut album ‘Soul Holiday’ in 2017, has just enjoyed huge success as Todrick Hall’s special guest at his sold-out shows at The London Palladium and the O2 Ritz Manchester.

Her debut tour is presented by concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor.
