Busy David Bedella is returning to the award-winning musical, In The Heights after a brief stint back in the West End production of The Rocky Horror Show.

They are joined by Sugababes’ Jade Ewen, Lily Frazer, Antoine Murray-Straughan, Joe Aaron Reid and Cleve September. The cast also includes Jocasta Almgill, Courtney-Mae Briggs, Michael Cortez, Gabriela Garcia, Reiss Hinds, Alexandra Sarmiento and Spin.
David Bedella is currently reprising his performance as Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Show until the end of the month.
He is also known for his Olivier Award winning performance as Satan in Jerry Springer the Opera (National Theatre), with other credits including The Producers, Sweeney Todd, Road Show and Chicago.
In The Heights is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan’s most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music.
It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind.
With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.
The show opened at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2008 where it was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards, winning four. It also won the 2009 Grammy Award for its Original Broadway Cast Album and was nominated for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.
