The West End's Choir of Man, entering the second year of its run at London's Arts Theatre, welcomes a new company beginning March 12. The jukebox musical is currently selling tickets through September 29.

Continuing with the company are Adam Bayjou as The Hard Man, Michele Maria Benvenuto as The Maestro, Ben Goffe as The Handyman, Luke Conner Hall as The Romantic, and Mark Irwin as The Barman.

Sam Ebenezer, formerly one of the production's swings, newly takes over the role of The Poet, alongside new company members Robert Godfrey as The Beast, Sam Pope as The Joker, and Olugbenga Adelekan as The Pub Bore. Niall Woodson is continuing with the company as a swing, joined by new swings Seán Keany, Richard Lock, and Alex James Ellison.

Set in a pub, the 90-minute show explores male relationships and questions modern masculinity with hit songs by Queen, Luther Vandross, Sia, Paul Simon, Adele, Guns & Roses, Avicii, and Katy Perry.

Created by the show's director Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay, The Choir of Man has musical supervision, vocal arrangements, and orchestrations by Jack Blume. The production also features movement direction and choreography by Freddie Huddleston, monologues by Ben Norris, scenic design by Oli Townsend, lighting design by Richard Dinnen, costume design and associate scenic design by Verity Sadler, sound design by Sten Severson, and casting by Debbie O’Brien. Hollie Cassar serves as musical director and associate musical supervisor, and Rachel Chapman serves as associate choreographer.

The Choir of Man has previously had three sell-out seasons at the Sydney Opera House, sold-out American and European tours, and a run at Edinburgh Fringe. Its previous Arts Theatre run earned the production an Olivier nomination for Best Entertainment or Comedy Play.

The show is produced by Immersive Everywhere, Nic Doodson, Andrew Kay, Wendy and Andy Barnes, and AK Theatricals.
