John Barrowman Returns to Plymouth

Actor, singer, TV and West End star John Barrowman is set to return to Plymouth this autumn.

Best known on British television for his acting and presenting work for the BBC, his most prominent role has been as Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and its spin-off series Torchwood.
He has featured in shows such as Live & Kicking, Any Dream Will Do, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, and I'd Do Anything as well as appearing on the celebrity ice skating show Dancing on Ice.
John recently announced he has accepted a role in the hit TV show Desperate Housewives and will start filming imminently.
His latest tour will feature songs from his third solo album, the self-titled John Barrowman, released on March 1.
It's John's most personal record to date – the album he has always wanted to make.
As with 2007's Another Side and 2008's Music Music Music, it is an evocative and uplifting journey into his first love, musical theatre, comprising his favourite moments from Cats, Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys and Mack and Mabel among others.
The album is filled with instantly familiar standards like Memory, The Winner Takes It All and My Eyes Adored You and also includes the less immediately familiar, such as So Close, a spine-tingling duet with Jodie Prenger lifted from the recent Disney movie Enchanted.
Also included is a beautiful version of You’ll Never Walk Alone from Carousel, a song which his mother sang to him as a child.
Barrowman last visited the Pavilions in 2008. He returns to the venue on October 21. Tickets go on sale at 10am on March 5.
They cost: £37.50, £29.50, £19.50 on 0845 146 1460 and
