Sheridan Smith introduces spectacular new performances from West End and Broadway favourites

Sheridan Smith introduces spectacular West End and Broadway favourites performed at the London Palladium.

Recorded at the London Palladium with the BBC Concert Orchestra and hosted by multi award-winner Sheridan Smith, BBC Radio 2 invites you to a very night at the musicals. Featuring a glittering cast of UK and international stars performing the biggest songs from the shows.

Hits from classic shows such as The Phantom of the Opera, MAMMA MIA!, Dreamgirls and Wicked are joined by songs from newer productions, including Hamilton, SIX and Dear Evan Hansen. Amanda Holden joins Sheridan for a spine-tingling duet from Chess; Michael Ball belts out Hairspray’s ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ and there’s even a sneak-peek at a beautiful new track from Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s next big show, Cinderella.

And exclusively for BBC Radio 2 listeners the programme features performances from multi-platinum selling artist Josh Groban and Olivier and Tony award-winning Lea Salonga.

Plus, Idina Menzel chats to legendary leading lady, Elaine Paige.

“Musicals: The Greatest Show” is the centrepiece of "Radio 2 Celebrates Musicals" - three days of programmes featuring the music of stage and screen for people to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.

A TBI Media production for Radio 2 and BBC One.
