From June 28th until August 21st, Rebel will be replacing Samantha Spiro as Miss Adelaide in the 5 star musical currently playing at the Phoenix Theatre, a decision that had surprised many musical theatre fans.
Despite Rebel's reputation as a comedy actress, she's been involved with musicals from a young age and even trained at the Australian Theatre for Young People. She commented, "I am delighted to be making my West End debut in Guys and Dolls and to be playing such an iconic role as 'Miss Adelaide' is truly an honour."
Hopefully Rebel Wilson will 'crush it' in Guys and Dolls but you'll have to be in the audience to find out!
