Will Young makes his musical theatre debut, he will star in Cabaret as Emcee. The production will play The Savoy Theatre in London’s West End from 3 October, following an exclusive four week tour.

Speaking of his role Will said:

“I am very excited about the challenge of choosing Cabaret as my first musical theatre role. The role of 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!!!!”

Cabaret features some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre including ‘Money Makes The World Go Round’, ‘Two Ladies’ ‘Maybe This Time’ and of course ‘Cabaret’. The production turns Weimar Berlin of 1931 into a sassy, sizzling haven of decadence. And at its dark heart are the notorious Emcee and sassy Sally Bowles, who perform nightly at the infamous Kit Kat Klub.

Since its Broadway premiere in 1966 and the famous movie version with Liza Minnelli and Oscar winner Joel Grey, Cabaret has won a staggering number of stage and screen awards including 8 Oscar’s, 7BAFTA’s and 13 Tony’s.

Cabaret will play at The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, Theatre Royal Nottingham, Norwich Theatre Royal and The Lowry in Salford Quays directly prior to the West End.
