John Barrowman is set to go back on tour with his new show ‘I am What I am’

The 16 date UK tour, which is to include London West End at the Adelphi Theatre on Tuesday 24th May, is set to be launched on Saturday 30th April 2022 at Southend’s Cliff’s Pavillion.

Barrowman, whose musical career began 1989 in his debut West End role as Billy Cocker in Cole Porter’s musical ‘Anything Goes, has said that “from the West End to Broadway, this has been the amazing journey of my musical theatre career.”

He received an Olivier nomination as best Actor in a Musical, and has has countless leading West End roles, such in ‘Matador’, ‘Miss Saigon’, and ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. ‘I am What I am’ aims to be celebration of his West End musical career, and a magical journey through the very best of musical theatre.

“I’ve worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Cameron Mackintosh to name a few. I’ve performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway. I’ve lived my dreams. My new show is a celebration of that wonderful journey. I’ll perform songs from the biggest musicals I’ve starred in and perhaps one or two that I haven’t. Mix in a couple of duets. Sprinkle in a few surprises! This will be a show to remember. This has been a difficult time for many, so join me for a night of laughter and love and the best of musical theatre.”
