03 Sep CASTING: Urinetown West End Transfer

Simon Paisley Day (Musketeers, Doctor Who, Titanic, Sherlock, Spartacus, Being Human) will be reprising his critically-acclaimed role as the tyrannical Caldwell B. Cladwell, the machiavellian Head of UGC (Urine Good Company) in the West End transfer of Jamie Lloyd’s ground breaking, splash hit production of URINETOWN The Musical.

Returning to the show after its sell out season at The St James Theatre, rising star Matthew Seadon-Young will be taking on a new role, as Bobby Strong, Urinetown’s most unlikely hero, alongside BBC’s The Voice star Nathan Amzi who will be playing the role of Officer Barrel.

Further cast announced today for Urinetown The Musical are Alasdair Buchan (Swing), Christina Modestou (Swing), Kane Oliver Parry (Robbie The Stockfish) and Vicki Lee Taylor (Swing). Urinetown

Jamie Lloyd, Director, “I am really excited that we now have the full cast for our West End transfer of Urinetown. It is great that the brilliantly talented Simon Paisley Day is reprising the role of Caldwell B. Cladwell for our run at the Apollo Theatre. I am also thrilled that Matthew Seadon-Young will be getting the opportunity to play Bobby Strong. He is an extraordinary talent and very much a rising star to watch. I am looking forward to what he will bring to the role for our West End audiences. I saw Nathan Amzi’s fantastic performance in In The Heights, and obviously he is well known for his recent stint on the BBC’s hit show The Voice UK, and I know he will add another dimension to our multi-talented cast”.
