Happy birthday to John Barrowman!
So where were you the first time you saw John Barrowman?
I was in my old apartment in Long Beach, it was the mid-90s, and John appeared onscreen in the delicious but sadly short-lived CBS prime-time sudser Central Park West. He played a John F. Kennedy Jr. like character (until he killed his crazy tabloid reporter wife!) and I knew I had to see more of that man who turns 52 years old today.
It’s wonderful that John achieved some mainstream success with Torchwood and Arrow.
But boy, there’s nothing like seeing this gifted star sing.
He has more than 20 years of stage roles behind him – mostly on London’s West End where his shows have included Sunset Boulevard, Anything Goes, Miss Saigon, Hair, Beauty and the Beast, Godspell and The Fix.
Here are three musical performances from Mr. Barrowman to enjoy:
