Emily Benjamin will star in the award-winning wild west musical, Bronco Billy. Benjamin is currently appearing as alternate Sally Bowles in Cabaret.

“I’m so excited to explore this wild world of Bronco Billy - The Musical - a show that says you can be whatever you want to be if that’s a powerful woman, a disco dancer, a poet, a performer, a cowboy - there’s somewhere out there that you can be your true self, no matter what other people tell you.” Emily Benjamin said in a statement.

Bronco Billy is a musical comedy based on the original Clint Eastwood motion picture. Following a group of misfits in a travelling Wild West show, things take a turn when the troupe's leader meets a determined heiress (Benjamin) on the run for her life.

This entertaining new musical features a book by Dennis Hackin, music and lyrics by Chip Rosenbloom and John Torres, with additional lyrics by Michele Brourman.

Bronco Billy made its world premiere at the Skylight Theatre Company, Los Angeles, on 18 May 2019 to critical acclaim.

The production will play at the Charing Cross Theatre from 12 January until 7 April 2024. Book Bronco Billy tickets on London Theatre.
