Marcus Farnsworth


As dangerous Eddy, the award-winning young baritone Marcus Farnsworth is electrifying. He has no trouble with the demotic accent and conveys the character’s anger, panic and perky charm with intensity and empathy. He also has an instinctive musicality that never makes the vocal line sound over-studied or phoney. He must have a great career ahead of him.
