Torn Apart

In 2000 - 2001, Dean was playing opposite Tina Arena and Dannii Minogue, at the West End's Dominion theatre, in this French Musical spectacular  based on the book 'Notre Dame de Paris' by Victor Hugo.
He played the part of 'Phoebus' the handsome Captain of the King's Cavalry who was engaged to 'Fleur de Lys' but lustfully in love with 'Esmerelda'.
This touching dichotamy of love was only slightly overshadowed by the question of 'what will he do next' in the hair department. Dean's very original slant on the part won many fans over as well as the French producers & the writing team. However a certain fan of the show 'Peter Jenkins' hated his brutish performance so much that he became regular topic of conversation on the NDP message board. (He was the only one though)

'This was my favourite show to do for many reasons ... The cast and the atmosphere back stage was like a family ... the management team on all levels were amazing especially when the politics from across the channel could have have been very damaging, but due to the professionalism of Cole Kitchen and company managers Ba Penny & Jonathon Wolf the show was a dream to work on'

Dean's second performance of Notre Dame was after his two weeks pre arranged business holiday in New York. However when Dean went on he realised he couldn't remember the first line of his solo 'Torn Apart' which ended up him singing absolute twaddle in a French accent. Afterwards the he was greeted by the fans outside with 'I didn't know you did the show in France?'. Little did they know!

Dildo in hand

Dean left Notre Dame at the End of July 2001 to go and produce his own three musicals at the Edinburgh festival
