Direct from his award nominated performance as Emcee, internationally celebrated singer/songwriter WILL YOUNG reprises his role in Rufus Norris’ acclaimed production of CABARET. Following a successful West End run, the CABARET tour will open at the GAIETY THEATRE on Tuesday 29th Oct to Saturday 2nd Nov.
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 and holds the record for the fastest selling debut single in British chart history. Will has also enjoyed a successful acting career which saw him appear alongside Dame Judi Dench in the film Mrs Henderson Presents, and it is the combination of these talents which has led him to star in Cabaret.
Since its Broadway premiere in 1966 and the renowned movie version with Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, Cabaret has won a staggering number of stage and screen awards including 8 Oscars, 7 BAFTAs and 13 Tonys.
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. Andat its dark heart are the notorious Emcee and sassy Sally Bowles, who perform nightly at the infamous Kit Kat Klub.
Rufus Norris is a multi-award winning theatre, opera and film director whose production of London Road at the National Theatre, where he is associate director, won the Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Other theatre includes Vernon God Little (Young Vic), Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Broadway), Festen (West End and Broadway) The Country Girl (Apollo) and Afore Night Came (Young Vic, Evening Standard Award). Featuring Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy, Rory Kinnear, and original music by Damon Albarn, his debut feature film Broken opened the prestigious Critics’ Week at the Cannes film festival in 2012. It was produced by Cuba Pictures, BBC Films, Lypsync and Bill Kenwright.
