Panic! At the Disco frontman Brendon Urie will make his Broadway debut as Charlie Price in Kinky Boots, joining the cast May 26-August 6 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Urie succeeds Killian Donnelly in the Tony-winning musical, which just celebrated its four-year anniversary on Broadway.

"I'm thrilled to be making my Broadway debut with this fantastic company," said Urie. "I'm a huge fan of Kinky Boots and musical theater, and am honored to be joining the cast."

Urie is the frontman of the Grammy-nominated rock band, Panic! At the Disco.
