LIFE IS A CABARET FOR WILL

 

Rufus Norris’ much anticipated re-imagining of his double Olivier-award winning production of CABARET is to star internationally renowned singer/songwriter Will Young in his musical theatre debut as the enigmatic Emcee.

“I am very excited about the challenge of choosing Cabaret as my first musical theatre role.”   Will said. “The role of the Emcee is a part I have wanted to play since before I started training at Arts Education in Chiswick when I first moved to London. With Rufus and Javier I couldn’t wish for better people to be surrounded by. I have spent the last ten years, singing, dancing and acting all separately. For the first time I get to do all three in one show. How could I NOT be excited. After the success of my latest album, ‘Echoes’ it feels like the perfect time to step back from pop for 6 months and take on the challenge of story-telling in another form and what a story to tell!”

The production will play The Savoy Theatre in London’s West End from 3 October, following an exclusive four week tour.
