He has been praised for the role in New York and the cast, which also includes Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola, will head to the Haymarket Theatre.

Never did we think we would have the privilege to perform this show on Broadway, let alone in London. I'm honoured that Alessandro, Patricia, the entire company and I have the opportunity to continue to tell his story.
