In the role that earned him an Olivier award nomination and WhatsOnStage award, WILL YOUNG reprises his critically acclaimed performance of Emcee in Rufus Norris’ production of CABARET alongside Strictly Runner up LOUISE REDKNAPP who makes her stage debut.

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. LOUISE REDKNAPP was one of the most successful solo artists of the 90’s. She finished third in the recent series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Directed by National Theatre Artistic Director Rufus Norris and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Javier de Frutos, the production has enjoyed two smash hit West End runs.

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.
