John Barrowman returns to perform in London in Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway at Leicester Square Theatre April 13th-14th 2018

BROADWAY

LEICESTER SQUARE THEATRE
APRIL 13-14 2018

International theatre and TV star John Barrowman MBE returns to perform in London in Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre concert series for 3 intimate performances produced by Mark Cortale.  

John Barrowman is best know in the US for his role of Malcolm Merlyn (aka The Dark Archer) in the hit TV series Arrow, based on the Green Arrow comic books, and in the UK as Captain Jack Harkness, in Dr Who and 
Torchwood. 

Seth Rudetsky recently starred in a charity gala of his Broadway musical Disaster! in 2016 at Charing Cross Theatre.

Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre began in 2013 with Patti LuPone and returned with Audra McDonald last year. What differentiates this concert series from any other perhaps, is the seamless mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from Broadway’s biggest stars – prompted by Rudetsky’s probing, funny, revealing questions – and their stellar singing of the musical theatre repertoire. This is a spontaneous evening of hilarity and show-stopping songs that is not to be missed.

John Barrowman landed his first professional role, starring as Billy Crocker opposite Elaine Paige in the Cole Porter musical Anything Goes. Since then, John’s career as a leading man in musical theatre has seen him star in many West End shows, including Matador, Miss Saigon, The Phantom Of The Opera, and Sunset Boulevard. John made his Broadway debut in the role of Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard. He then returned to Broadway starring in Stephen Sondheim’s Putting it Together with Carole Burnett. Sam Mendes’ UK premiere of The Fix at the Donmar Warehouse garnered John an Olivier Award nomination as Best Actor in a Musical. He appeared in the West End most recently as Albin/Zaza in the Menier Chocolate Factory’s award-winning production of La Cage Aux Folles, performing to full houses for nine weeks in 2009. This role won John the 2010 What’s On Stage award for Best Take-over in a Role. In HM The Queen’s Birthday Honours 2014, John was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to entertainment and to charity. www.johnbarrowman.com
