Michael made his West End debut when Cameron Mackintosh cast him as Marius Pontmercy in the original London production of Les Misérables. Ball was last on stage in the ENO production of Chess at the London Coliseum. His previous theatre credits include Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at the Adelphi Theatre, Passion at Queen’s Theatre, Hairspray at the Shaftesbury Theatre which then went on to tour the UK, The Woman in White at the Palace Theatre and then on Broadway, The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Aspects of Love at the Prince of Wales Theatre, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium where he played Carrie Hope Fletcher’s stage father. Alongside his musical theatre career, for which he has received two Olivier Awards and an OBE, Ball is a platinum-selling concert artist and was the first musical theatre star to have been given a solo concert at BBC Proms. He currently presents The Michael Ball Show on BBC Radio 2 and has also presented on multiple television series including The Michael Ball Show. Other television includes That Day We Sang (BBC) written by Victoria Wood. Along side his solo career, Michael has had back to back triumphs with Alfie Boe - number 1 albums in 2016 and 2017, with combined sales of over 1 million which lead to them winning a pair of Classical Brit awards and being asked to front their own ITV specials as well as touring International arenas. Ball recently completed a 23 date tour of the UK to coincide with the release of his number 1 album, Coming Home To You.
