Tyrone Huntley will star as Wes in the UK premiere of The View Upstairs musical at Soho Theatre.

Huntley, known for his performances in Leave to Remain and Jesus Christ Superstar, completes the cast for the show and joins the previously announced Andy Mientus, Declan Bennett, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Cedric Neal, John Partridge, Carly Mercedes Dyer, Gary Lee, Joseph Prouse and Derek Hagen.

The piece follows Wes, a young fashion designer who buys an abandoned space that was formerly a '70s gay bar, burned down in an arson attack that killed 32 people decades earlier.

The musical is written by Max Vernon and will be directed in London by Jonathan O'Boyle with choreography by Fabian Aloise, set and costume design by Lee Newby, lighting by Nic Farman, sound by Adam Fisher and casting by Will Burton.

The View Upstairs runs from 18 July to 24 August.
