Paul is in the 30th Anniversary Cast of Starlight Express in Bochum. Kristian joins the new cast as Ruhrgold & u/s Electra & Dustin.

Starlight Express is a rock musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber (music) and Richard Stilgoe (lyrics), with revisions by Don Black, David Yazbek, Alistair Lloyd Webber, Nick Coler and Lauren Aquilina. In the story, a child’s train set magically comes to life, and the various engines compete in a series of races to be crowned “the fastest engine in the world”. The underdog, a steam train called Rusty, has little chance until he is inspired by the legend of the Starlight Express, ultimately winning both the race and the heart of first-class coach Pearl.
