Killian Donnelly

If there was a huge asteroid hurtling toward Earth threatening to destroy life as we know it and you could see one more show before you die, what would it be? It can be anything you want - a show you’ve seen before, one that you wish you’d seen, or something you’ve made up entirely. What would be YOUR Last Show on Earth? This is the podcast in which we ask a special guest the big, BIG question that nobody ever needed (or indeed) bothered to ask. 

Our guest this episode is Killian Donnelly

Originally from Ireland, Olivier nominated Killian Donnelly has worked extensively in theatre playing leading roles in shows such as Kinky Boots (a show which gave him his Broadway debut in 2016), Billy Elliott, The Commitments, Memphis, Les Miserables, The Phantom the Opera and Fun Home.

He met Alistair when they worked together in the West End production of Les Miserables (subsequently working together on the Les Miz movie), and he first worked with John when he played Raoul opposite John's Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre. This was when the legendary and much missed viral online video series John vs Killian was born - in which John and Killian competed against each other in increasingly absurd challenges backstage.

He lives with his wife and two children in Dublin but is currently spending most of his time in London where he has returned to the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at the Sondheim Theatre.

This is final episode of Season 1 and next year we will switch from a monthly release schedule to a twice yearly "seasonal" schedule.

We will return with Season 2 in May 2024 and will release a bunch of episodes in a brand new weekly format with Season 3 landing in October!

We are also looking at ways of getting you, the listener, more involved with the show...more details coming in the New Year...

Happy Christmas and thanks for listening!
