Russell Tovey Makes His Singing Debut in ‘View from the Bridge’
Russell Tovey poses on the carpet while attending the opening night after party for the new Broadway production of A View From the Bridge on Thursday (November 12) at Guastavino’s restaurant in New York City.
Russell revealed to Billboard that he makes his singing debut in the play.
“I’ve never been paid to sing. I’ve sung on a karaoke stage. A lot. But have I sung where someone’s been giving me a wage? No,” Russell said. “Well, actually, we sang a tiny bit in The History Boys, didn’t we? We had kind of like, ‘Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye’ songs, with a little bit of a routine. But this is… I mean, [‘Paper Doll’] is only like five lines, and then my character gets cut off. But, it’s a nice five lines, and it kind of comes out of nowhere. So, yeah, it’s been fun.”
