Following sell-out shows across the UK in 2011, John Barrowman headlines three exclusive summer outdoor performances, continuing tonight, 22nd June 2012 at Glasgow Green and 23rd June 2012 at Tower Festival Headland, Blackpool.
The outdoor shows will feature John Barrowman, live band and a full production.
John Barrowman was voted number 3 in Broadcast Magazine’s Hot 100 Talent. Having created the role of Captain Jack Harkness in the first series of Russell T Davies’s revamped Doctor Who for BBC TV, the character created such an impact that he was given his own spin off series, Torchwood. Series 4 aired in 2011 on BBC1 as a co-production between BBC Worldwide and Starz Entertainment.
John’s talents have recently been seen on primetime Saturday night, presenting his own show Tonight’s The Night on BBC1. The show, which helped ordinary people to fulfill their performing dreams, was a co production with John’s Production Company, Barrowman Barker Productions. The second series of Tonight’s The Night aired in summer 2010 and the third series aired in 2011.
Born in Glasgow, where he spent his early years, John moved with his family to the United States. Whilst studying back in the UK in 1989, he landed his first professional role, starring as Billy Crocker opposite Elaine Paige in the Cole Porter musical Anything Goes at the Prince Edward Theatre. Further West End credits include Matador at the Queen’s Theatre, Chris in Miss Saigon at Drury Lane, Raoul in The Phantom Of The Opera at Her Majesty’s, The Beast in Beauty And The Beast at the Dominion, The Fix at the Donmar Warehouse (for which John received an Olivier Award nomination as Best Actor in a Musical), Claude in Hair at the Old Vic, and Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard at the Adelphi, playing opposite both Betty Buckley and Elaine Paige.
