Matt Hetherington 'knocked them dead' in the world premiere stage production of Alfred Hitchcock's iconic North by Northwest with the Melbourne Theatre company. He played arch villain Vandamm made famous by James Mason.
Matt has now returned to LA where he is continuing to have great success after being cast as the lead in Pretty Woman, the musical directed by the original movie director and Hollywood legend Gary Marshall.
"For all my meticulous planning and endless hours of preparation, the success of my event really came down to one decision – choosing Essential. From the beginning their friendly and mature manner meant that they were a pleasure to deal with. On the night, their amazing talent had the dance floor full from the very first song. Their interaction with the crowd and professionalism made my event the success that it was and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for future corporate or personal functions."
