The Rebecca Frecknall-directed London revival of Cabaret, which officially opened December 12, 2021, at London's Kit Kat Club (the renovated Playhouse Theatre) starring Oscar, Tony, and Olivier winner Eddie Redmayne as The Emcee with stage and screen favorite Jessie Buckley as Sally Bowles, welcomes two new leads March 21.
Fra Fee (The Ferryman, Hawkeye) steps into the role of The Emcee, and Olivier nominee Amy Lennox (Kinky Boots, Lazarus) is Sally Bowles, both through June 25. The two actors previously shared the stage in the Belfast production of The Last Five Years.
Also joining the production March 21 are Omar Baroud (The Innocents, You Bury Me) as Cliff Bradshaw and Vivien Parry (Top Hat, Mamma Mia!) as Fraulein Schneider. Continuing in their roles are Elliot Levey as Herr Schultz, Stewart Clarke as Ernst Ludwig, and Anna-Jane Casey as Fraulein Kost.
