West Lothian theatre to host special show

A tribute to some of the greatest musicals of all time featuring ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ winner Jai McDowall is coming to West Lothian this month.

‘Come What May’ will feature hits from ‘Moulin Rouge’, ‘Rocketman’, ‘The Greatest Showman’, ‘A Star is Born’ and ‘Burlesque’ and is coming to Howden Park Centre in Livingston on Wednesday, September 16.

Featuring the sensational BGT winner Jai McDowall alongside a cast of West End theatre performers, the musical extravaganza is a guaranteed “Spectacular, Spectacular” evening of much-loved songs, pure glitz and old-time glamour.

Travel back in time as the children of the revolution take you into the sexy, disreputable and glamorous underworld of Paris at the Moulin Rouge.

Have a musical peep into the flamboyant world of Elton John, journey on into the imagination of the original showman PT Barnum before heading to the bright lights of Los Angeles as well as the kitsch glamour of Sunset Boulevard’s Burlesque Lounge.

‘Come What May’ is packed with timeless classics from ‘Moulin Rouge’ including ‘Come What May’, ‘Your Song’, ‘Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend’, ‘Roxanne’ and ‘Lady Marmalade’ as well as hits from other iconic movie musicals from ‘Come Alive’, ‘Saturday Night’s Alright’ and ‘Shallow’ to ‘Show Me How You Burlesque’.

This all-singing, all-dancing show is an unforgettable combination of dreams, adventure and above all – love!

Jai McDowall heads a cast of 12. He won the fifth season of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, capturing the hearts of a nation with his powerhouse vocals, natural charm and versatile song interpretations.

Jai appeared at the 2011 Royal Variety Performance and has since toured the UK with his own show, as well as appearing in the theatre shows ‘Mad About the Musicals’ and ‘Les Musicals’ as well as in London at ‘Live at Zedel’.

He said ‘Moulin Rouge’ is his favorurite musical of all time, adding: “I love the music. Sadly I’ve not made it to the real thing yet.

“I think it’d be amazing to be in Paris in the year 1900. A life with lots of singing and dancing in Paris, what more could you ask for?”

Jai said he was fortunate to join West Lothian’s very own superstar Susan Boyle on tour recently.

He continued: “Just before covid/lockdown hit, I was fortunate enough to tour with Susan Boyle around the UK.

“It was such an incredible experience and something I have wanted to do since being on Britain’s Got Talent, so that was a massive tick off the bucket list.”
