John Barrowman

John Barrowman is the epitome of showbusiness! He is a whirlwind of talent, the ultimate crossover artist; he can sing, dance, act, present and on occasion he judges. He has mapped out a very successful career on both sides of the Atlantic. 'I Am What I Am - West End to Broadway 'is a celebration of career highlights but also a magical journey through the very best of musical theatre.

It all began in 1989 in musical theatre and his debut West End role as Billy Cocker opposite Elaine Paige in Cole Porter's musical Anything Goes.

His West End to Broadway journey had begun and continued with leading roles in Matador, Miss Saigon, The Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard and reprising his role in Sunset Boulevard on Broadway.

His other musical theatre credits include Putting it Together (Broadway), The Fix (Donmar) for which he received an Oliver nomination for "Best Actor in a Musical". The National Theatre revival of Anything Goes which transferred to Drury Lane but it is his role as Albin in La Cage Aux Folles which John regards as one of his favourites and won him the What's on Stage 'Best Takeover Role'. The classic song from the La Cage "I am What I am" has become his signature tune with which he closes his live concert shows.

John said "From the West End to Broadway, this has been the amazing journey of my musical theatre career. I've worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Cameron Mackintosh to name a few. I've performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway. I've lived my dreams. My new show is a celebration of that wonderful journey. I'll perform songs from the biggest musicals I've starred in and perhaps one or two that I haven't. Mix in a couple of duets. Sprinkle in a few surprises! This will be a show to remember. This has been a difficult time for many, so join me for a night of laughter and love and the best of musical theatre."
