David Bedella (born September 25, 1962) is an American actor. He is currently based in London and is best known for his Olivier award-winning roles in Jerry Springer – The Opera, In The Heights and & Juliet.

Early Life

Bedella was born in Gary, Indiana and graduated from Merrillville High School in 1980. After performing in Showboat‘81 at Opryland U.S.A. he began eight years of theatre in Chicago from 1982–1990 during which, in 1985, he won his first professional acting award, the Joseph Jefferson Award (Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical) for his performance in A Chorus Line.After several National Tours including Dreamgirls, Jesus Christ Superstar and 42nd St., he relocated to New York City in the autumn of 1990 and began what would be 11 years of regional and Broadway work which included Goodspeed Opera House in 1991 and a tour of La Cage aux Folles starring Gene Barry and Lee Roy Reams.From 1992 to 1995, he played Caiaphas in the 20th anniversary national tour of Jesus Christ Superstar with Ted Neeley, Carl Anderson, Dennis DeYoung, Irene Cara and Syrita Wright. In 1995, he joined the original company of Smokey Joe’s Café on Broadway which he played, on and off, for five years before leaving to tour the United States with Diahann Carrol in Lerner and Lowe’s Almost Like Being in Love. In 2001, he and his boyfriend at the time, Pressley Sutherland, relocated to the United Kingdom where Bedella began his London career. His first West End show was the legendary and controversial Jerry Springer the Opera at The National Theatre, for which he won his first Olivier Award in 2004 for best actor in a musical. He went on to perform the lead roles in the Rocky Horror Show, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Producers and eventually, the role for which he won the What’s On Stage and his second Olivier Award, Kevin Rosario in the London premiere of In The Heights in 2015. For several years, Bedella has hosted his own live chat show, David Bedella And Friends (DBAF) which took the London Cabaret Society’s Best Long Running Cabaret Award, in 2015. The chat show began at the Alley Cat and moved to the St. James Theatre in Victoria, London, hosting an array of artists from stage and screen. Bedella’s work is not limited to the stage but includes five television series for the BBC and three Hollywood feature films as well as voicing several characters on the series Thomas and Friends. He has also performed in four pantomimes alongside Christopher Biggins, Bradley Walsh and for the last two years, has partnered the John Linehan (aka: May McFettridg) at the Belfast Grand Opera House in NI.
