Richard Taylor Woods

Richard Taylor Woods was the second Cal in Waitress the Musical on the West End, following Stephen Leask leaving.

Prior to joining Waitress, Richard was part of the ensemble at 9 To 5: The Musical at the Savoy Theatre, across the road from the Adelphi Theatre on the Strand. He later joined the 9 To 5: The Musical UK and Ireland tour.

Following his first ever casting in 1999 for Boyband – The Musical at the Gielgud Theatre, Richard scored a UK Top 75 single (peaking at #41) in February 2000 entitled “Set Me Free” as part of the boyband, BritPack, featuring the fictional boyband from the musical. BritPack supported S Club 7 and Westlife on tour, and performed on national TV promoting the single.
