Tyrone Huntley is to star in the world premiere of new LGBTQ+ musical The View Upstairs at Soho Theatre in London.

The musical, about a young fashion designer who unknowingly purchases the former site of the 70s gay bar UpStairs Lounge in New Orleans, runs from July 18 to August 24.

Press night is on July 23 and there is a gala night in aid of the Albert Kennedy Trust, which supports LGBTQ+ people facing homelessness, on July 24.

Huntley, who plays Wes, joins a previously announced cast which includes Andy Mientus, Declan Bennett, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Cedric Neal and John Partridge.

Carly Mercedes Dyer, Gary Lee, Joseph Prouse and Derek Hagen complete the cast.

The musical is written by Max Vernon and is directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, with choreography by Fabian Aloise.

The View Upstairs is produced in London by Jack Maple and Brian Zeilinger for Take Two Theatricals and Ken Fakler, with Creative House Productions and associate producers Ben Lockwood and Sue Marks.
