Joining the cast from 12 March are Sam Pope (Bat Out of Hell) as The Joker, Alex James Ellison (Fiver, Glory Ride) as swing, and Olugbenga Adelekan (music producer and bassist from Metronomy), who will be making his West End debut as The Pub Bore.

Performers from The Choir of Man shows from around the world will also be joining the West End cast. They include Robert Godfrey (Choir of Man – Sydney Opera House) as The Beast, with Seán Keany (The Choir of Man - Korea) and Richard Lock (original Beast in The Choir Of Man - West End) to join as swings.

The rest of the cast includes Adam Bayjou (Les Misérables) as The Hard Man, Michele Maria Benvenuto (West End debut) as The Maestro, Ben Goffe (Hex, Snow White at the London Palladium) as The Handyman, Luke Conner Hall (Bat Out of Hell) as The Romantic, Mark Irwin (The Commitments) as The Barman, Sam Ebenezer (The Mousetrap) as The Poet, and Niall Woodson (West End debut) as a swing.

The musical, which is set in a British pub, is a celebration of community and friendship and includes hits from artists such as Queen, Luther Vandross, Sia, Paul Simon, Adele, Guns & Roses, Avicii, and Katy Perry.

Nic Doodson, who created the musical with Andrew Kay, said, “We’re absolutely delighted to extend the opening hours of The Choir of Man in the West End. Since first opening at the Arts Theatre in 2021, it’s come to be a real home for us and we love opening the doors to The Jungle, our onstage pub, and welcoming everyone in to share an evening of stories, song and of course, a beer or two.

"The new company that will be the landlords of The Jungle are an incredible group of performers and we can’t wait for not only our regulars but also our new visitors to see them every night!“
