Lantern-jawed, multi-untalented singer-with-a-lisp Will Young is to star in a version of the genius musical Cabaret. And not as the gorilla either.
Yes, theatre-lovers, Will Young, winner of competitions, rudest man in all of pop, is to star as the Emcee in a ‘re-imagining’ of the classic musical. It is a role that was made legendary by Joel Grey in the movie, a role that has only really been successfully managed by Alan Cumming since then.
Said Will, ‘I have spent the last ten years singing and dancing and acting…’ We will be the judge of that.
Up to play Sally Bowles opposite Will in the musical that will tour the fleapits of the UK before settling in the West End just in time for the general exodus related to the Olympic Games are the likes of Su Pollard, Pat from EastEnders and Bagpuss.
