Rufus Norris's 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. The production will play The Savoy Theatre in London's West End from 3 October, following an exclusive four week tour.
Ever since winning the inaugural series of Pop Idol in 2002, Will Young has been one of the UK's most popular and successful music artists, selling over 9 million albums. He holds the record for the fastest selling debut single in British chart history, and has enjoyed a phenomenal career in music, as well as acting alongside Dame Judi Dench in the film Mrs Henderson Presents and making his professional theatre debut in Noel Coward's The Vortex at the Manchester Royal Exchange. Will's recent Platinum selling album, Echoes, was a huge hit with fans and critics alike, and went straight to number one in the charts.
Cabaret features show-stopping choreography, dazzling costumes and 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 Oscars, 7 BAFTAs and 13 Tonys.
