Show Notes

Joel Harper-Jackson is back In The Frame to discuss his whirlwind year in theatreland.

Earlier this year, Joel was cast as an understudy in Marianne Elliott's West End revival of C * C K by Mike Bartlett. Joel went on for the role of M multiple times, including half-way through the first preview, due to the indisposition of Taron Egerton. Joel went on to take over the role full-time to huge acclaim, and is now nominated for a WhatsOnStage Award for Best Takeover Performance.

After C * C K, Joel went on to play Freddie in Chess In Concert at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane before playing Charlie Price in Kinky Boots In Concert at the same venue, a role he previously played in the musical's UK and Ireland tour.

Some of Joel's theatre credits also include: Tom Price in Pieces Of String (Mercury Theatre), Curious Incident (UK Tour), Simon in Jesus Christ Superstar (Regents Park), Beautiful: The Carole King Musical (Aldwych), Che in Evita (Slovenia) and Rent (UK Tour).
