He says: “I can’t wait to work with the incredible team and company, and follow on from two actors who I hugely respect and admire.

“I feel very lucky and excited to be taking on such an iconic role within this widely celebrated and unique production. It’s going to be a ride.”

He follows up his It’s A Sin co-star, Omari Douglas who also starred in the West End revival of the musical as Cliff Bradshaw.

Douglas appeared alongside Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley in the production, which performed to sold-out audiences in late 2021 and early 2022.

The show teases: “Welcome to the Kit Kat Club. Home to an intimate and electrifying new production of Cabaret.”

The show is performed ‘in the rounds’ for guests, who receive a ‘club entry time’ for pre-show drinks at the Kit Kat Klub, designed to fit in with the motif of late 1920s Weimar-era Germany.

It received a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards in April this year, the most for any musical revival in Olivier history, including Best Actor and Best Actress for Redmayne and Buckley.

Despite being a celebratory and lavish musical, the show also serves as a stark reminder about the rise of fascism, as it takes place alongside the growing presence of Nazi Party

It’s based on the 1939 novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood and features music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.

It’s classic numbers include “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Money” and “Maybe This Time” as well as the iconic title track.

The musical was famously adapted into a 1972 film starring Liza Minnelli in her first role singing on screen, which has since become an iconic performance.

The film adaptation went on to win eight Academy Awards including Best Actress for Liza and Best Director for Bob Fosse.
