Singer and Broadway star Keala Settle, best known for the film The Greatest Showman, is to perform live in concert this Christmas at London’s Cadogan Hall.

Production company Fourth Wall Live has announced that the show will be on 22 December 2021, with tickets due to go on sale at midday on Friday 28 May.

Settle said: “After the past year-and-a-half we have had, I have learned and understood more about my voice and the healing power of music. This concert is filled with music that has helped heal me and rediscover life. I cannot wait to share it with you all. Performing in London will be a long-awaited homecoming and I am so excited to celebrate with everyone.”

On Broadway, Settle was part of the original cast of Waitress, as Becky, and played Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables and Shirley in Priscilla Queen of the Desert. She was nominated for a Tony Award for her role in musical Hands on a Hardbody. Other theatre roles include Tracy Turnblad in a US tour of Hairspray and Cy in the live TV broadcast of Rent on Fox.

Her films include Ricki and the Flash but she became a break-out star as bearded lady Lettie Lutz in the 2017 film The Greatest Showman alongside Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Zendaya. She led the vocals on the film’s biggest hit, “This Is Me”.

In 2019, Settle joined Jackman on his world tour, The Man. The Music. The Show., where she performed “This Is Me” for audiences across Europe, New Zealand, Australia and parts of North America. In 2017, she released her debut EP, Chapter One, a compilation of contemporary R&B-infused covers.

The concert’s producer is Fourth Wall Live which is a new collaboration between boutique concert producer Club 11 London and theatrical producer DLAP Entertainment. They previously worked on Chita Rivera’s show at Cadogan Hall together and produced Eurovision-inspired musical Eurobeat – The Pride of Europe for streaming in May this year.
