His energy is inspiring and his delivery of the role was a master-class in acting and Live performance.
Here’s Jon Jon, Alistair & Alex at the Price Edward Theatre August 2014:
Alistair Brammer ~ Chris
Most recently Alistair starred in Warhorse after taking the lead in Billy in Taboo in the revival production in Brixton. Alistair also wowed crowds as Marius in Les Misérables at the Queens Theatre,
Brammer was honoured to appear as Prouvaire in Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2 Arena in front of 18,000 people led by Alfie Boe. After this success Alistair was asked to reprise the role in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables movie.
Alistair has also toured as Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and in Hair.
Alistair has a unqiue warmth to his performance. His vocals are nothing short of spectacular and you absolutely believe his tortuous hearthache throughout this hugely moving production.
Brammer has clear mastered the art of his craft. There literally is not a dry eye in the house as he steals the show with ‘The Last NIght Of The World’.
A seriously impressive performance that should lead to a litany of awards.
