by Variety and Rolling Stone. Maria is also the creator and star of Maria

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
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
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
