Ramin Karimloo pulls out of Company in Toronto

Updated 27th October: Ramin Karimloo has said that due to personal circumstances he will no longer be performing in this production.

According to an article in today's Toronto Star it is reported that Ramin Karimloo, the biggest musical star to come from the Greater Toronto Area, might at last be performing there.

If everything works out Karimloo will star as Bobby in Theatre 20’s production of Sondheim's Company in January after the Canadian launch of his debut album Human Heart in August and appearance at the Rose Theatre in Brampton in September. There is also a rumour that Karimloo will be the leading man when the new 25th anniversary tour of Les Misérables eventually arrives in Toronto.

At first I was worried about the idea,” admits Karimloo. “Stephen Sondheim’s music is tough and it scares me. But the kind of things that Bobby deals with I can understand. When I heard that Gary Griffin (the Chicago-based director who has recently staged West Side Story, Evita and 42nd Street at Stratford) was going to be in charge, that helped a whole lot. I knew I had to be a part of it.”

Seems like Ramin could be away from the UK for a while ….?
