Musical Madness For X-Factor Winner Steve
He’s famous as the first winner of the UK’s biggest talent search and for falling out with its creator Simon Cowell. Now Steve Brookstein will be centre stage once again appearing in the award-winning musical Our House at Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 29 May to 21 June.
Written by Tim Firth, the musical uses the music of Madness to tell the story of youngster Joe Casey, with Steve Brookstein appearing as his Dad. And Steve is thrilled to be making his first appearance in a musical:
“On the X Factor I was singing in front of millions of viewers every week, but I can’t wait to be singing live in front of an audience in Birmingham every night,” he says. “You get so much back from people, it’s the best feeling in the world and where I really feel at home. Acting is an exciting new challenge for me and it’s great to show what I can do. Our House is a great story and is uses the fantastic music of Madness – what more could you want for a great night out?”
Our House will open at The REP in may ahead of a major UK tour. A touching tale of life and love, heartbreak and comedy, right and wrong, Our House is a brilliant musical bursting with non-stop classic hits from everyone’s favourite 80s pop group Madness.
The musical was a hit in the West End and won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical. It features the Madness hits My Girl, Wings Of A Dove, Baggy Trousers, House Of Fun, Driving In My Car and of course It Must Be Love.
