UK singer-songwriter Conor Maynard, best known for hits including ‘Can’t Say No’, ‘Animal’ and ‘Turn Around’, is heading to Broadway.

It has been revealed that he will be taking over the role of Charlie Price in the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. He will be starring in the role from November 20, 2018, until January 10, 2019.

Conor follows in the footsteps of current Charlie Price star Mark Ballas. Other known faces who have also played the role in the past include Panic! At The Disco star Brendon Urie and Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears.

I’ve always truly admired the talent that performers on Broadway possess and performing alongside them is going to be a real challenge. I’m so lucky to have the most devoted fans on the planet, and I can’t wait to show them another side of me.”

In addition to his exciting new role, Conor has been busy preparing for his forthcoming new album. He has been working on new material in Los Angeles for the past few months. Over the summer, Conor also teamed up with Kris Kross Amsterdam and The Boy Next Door for ‘Whenever’, which has proven to be a smash hit. The track has garnered over 88 million streams and continues to gain popularity worldwide.
