BARROWMAN PANTOMINES ALADDIN
Unless you're English, that headline probably makes no sense, but basically
it means Torchwood's John Barrowman is the busiest man in England. And, as
this picture attests, the most colorfully dressed since Elton John.
Turns out John is not only starring in Torchwood, dropping in on Doctor
Who, crushing dreams judging on Andrew Lloyd Webber's Any Dream Will Do
(which concludes on Saturday night), but he's also signed on as the star of
Aladdin in something called a Christmas pantomime. This is a colorful,
theatrical event that is a holiday tradition for many families with kids.
Think of it as the U.K.'s version of The Nutcracker only with an openly gay
man in the lead role.
As if this wasn't already enough for one man, Barrowman is also appearing
at the Eridge Summer Fair on Sunday June 24th, then on Saturday June 30th
he'll take the stage at Trafalgar Square for London Pride.
Pinpoint customers who are looking for what you sell.
