Olivier and Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo will make a memorable Valentine’s Day when he performs his new show, From Now On, at The Living Arts Centre. Revisiting celebrated songs from the best of musical theatre in a sublime folk style, he will be accompanied by his acclaimed Broadgrass Band. To round out the perfect night out, The Living Arts Centre is hosting a themed dinner at the RBC Theatre prior to the show.
An Iranian-born Canadian, Karimloo made his Broadway debut as Jean Valjean in the 2014 revival of Les Misérables, for which he received a Tony Award nomination for best actor in a musical. As a twelve-year-old living in Canada, Karimloo decided to become a performer. His inspiration was Colm Wilkinson, who was going on tour in Phantom of the Opera at the time. He fell in love with Phantom and knew he would be performing until he got the title role – which he did. Karimloo has won fans from around the world for his portrayal of lead roles in the longest running productions of Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera in London’s West End and was hand-picked by Andrew Lloyd Webber to star in the Phantom sequel, Love Never Dies.
Ramin Karimloo has played in some of the biggest venues in the world including Royal Albert Hall and the 02 Arena in London. He’s also a stage veteran of the West End, Broadway and International productions such as Miss Saigon, Anastasia, The Secret Garden, Chess, Murder Ballad, Evita and The Prince of Broadway.
