Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie eyes West End role

He previously starred in the Broadway production of 'Kinky Boots'

Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has expressed his interest in taking on a role in a theatre production on London’s West End.

Urie earned plaudits for his stint in the Broadway production of Kinky Boots, which he starred in from May to August 2017.

Speaking to the BBC, Urie said that he next wants to perform in a British theatre production, with the frontman eyeing a big West End role.


“I would love to do the West End, but only if I play an American,” he said. “I wouldn’t want to butcher their [English] language in front of them.

“The dream is to play Jean Valjean in Les Miserables or to be Elder Price in Book of Mormon,” he said in terms of his ideal roles.

“Broadway is a different beast entirely to being in a band. It is the most gruelling schedule. It’s the most exhausted I had ever been,” he added.

“I also didn’t plan ahead enough. We had just done a two-and-a-half month tour and I was like, ‘Screw it, I am going right in to Broadway’. But it was cool – I’d never take it back.”
