David Bedella to Play Billy Flynn in Chicago in the West End
Bedella's other stage work includes his Olivier Award-winning performance as Satan in Jerry Springer the Opera, as well as The Rocky Horror Show in the West End and Chess at Royal Albert Hall. On screen, he has been seen in such movies as Alexander and Batman Begins, among others.
He joins a company that also stars Sarah Soetaert (Roxie Hart), Lisa Donmall (Velma Kelly), Jasna Ivir (Mama Morton), Victor McGuire (Amos Hart), and Russell Whitehead (Mary Sunshine).
With music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse, Chicago focuses on the ways in which two women attempt to exploit their crimes for show business success.
