Good old-fashioned show – even with John's big ego
John Barrowman: Hippodrome
SHOWBUSINESS seeps out of John Barrowman's every pore. As photographs of him growing up and later starting his musical theatre career flashed by on a big screen, one thing was made abundantly clear: this man was born to be on stage.
Barrowman was giving it the old razzle dazzle on the Hippodrome stage for three hours. His fans certainly got their money's worth, but his egotism did begin to grate somewhat in the second half.
That should not detract, however, from what was a mostly hugely enjoyable show. It was cabaret meets This Is Your Life, with Barrowman's two elderly parents even joining their son on stage for one number when he was not talking about his favourite subject, himself. Barrowman's life has taken some twists and turns, from being born in Glasgow, moving to Illinois, performing on Broadway and the West End, before hitting the big time with his portrayal of Captain Jack in Dr Who

Between talking about himself, he belted out the numbers, particular show-stoppers being his cover of Pink's Get the Party Started and Shania Twain's Man,
I Feel Like a Woman.
It was not all wild exuberance, however, with his versions of Memory and Let Your Love Flow showcasing his variety.
With much showbiz and razzle dazzle, this was good old-fashioned light entertainment from a consummate entertainer.
