This week, we visit London's King's Cross Theatre to talk to two-time Olivier Award winner David Bedella - if God has a voice, surely it must sound like David's!  David's journey from Broadway to the West End is a fascinating tale of hard work and perseverance, combined with a splash of serendipity.  It doesn't hurt that he is genuinely one of the nicest guys in the business.  David discusses his current role, playing "Kevin" in 'In the Heights' as well as 'Jerry Springer the Opera', and turning down the chance to play The Engineer in 'Miss Saigon'.
