Marti Pellow will play The Arbiter
Newcastle newspaper The Journal’s Barbara Hodgson interviewed Marti and reports the following:
Next month he will perform the role of Arbiter in the musical Chess at the Royal Albert Hall in London: Marti says he’ll be “a kind of referee of what goes on, a storyteller who points the audience where we’re going”.
He says: “It’s a wonderful piece. I love these challenges and I love the interaction, being part of a team. It’s something different for me and it takes me vocally where I’ve never been before.”
Marti adds, “I like these kinds of roles which take me out of my comfort zone.”
