From Belfast to Broadway via West End, Rachel is a star
Belfast girl Rachel Tucker is the toast of Broadway after giving one of the top 10 stand-out performances of the year. That is a tremendous plaudit for actress/singer who had earlier taken the West End by storm in the musical Wicked. The stage is an unforgiving medium. Success relies entirely on talent and combining acting and singing puts an added demand on every performance.
Her success on both sides of the Atlantic shows that dreams can come true - she cut her teeth going round Belfast clubs with her singer dad.
Yet another star, in yet another discipline, is born in this small province.
