Get ready for a panic at the theater. Panic! at the Disco frontman, Brendon Urie, is heading to Broadway to star in Kinky Boots.

“I’m thrilled to be making my Broadway debut with this fantastic company,” he said in a statement. “I’m a huge fan of Kinky Boots and musical theater and am honored to be joining the cast.”

Urie’s run kicks off May 26 and goes until Aug. 6 at New York’s Hirschfeld Theatre. He follows Killian Donnelly, who has played the role of Charlie Price in the Tony-winning musical since December.

Panic! at the Disco released its debut album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, featuring singles “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and “But It’s Better If You Do,” in 2005. Their lineup has changed multiple times over the years, and Urie became the only remaining member in 2015. The next year, he released the Grammy-nominated Death of a Bachelor.

“Writing with four people as opposed to just me alone — I like it better now,” he previously told EW. “I like getting my succinct ideas into a two and a half minute thing and if I need to, I can get feedback from people I work with. It feels like there’s less pressure, it’s more organic.”

There’s still time to buy tickets for the final run of dates as Urie wraps up the band’s Death of a Bachelor tour this week.
