About John: (Ffom NBC.com) Best known to American television audiences for his role as Peter Fairchild on the series "Central Park West," John Barrowman has been wowing theatergoers and critics alike in London, Los Angeles and New York for the past decade.
Most recently , Barrowman appeared on Broadway with Carol Burnett and Kathie Lee Gifford in Stephen Sondheim's "Putting It Together," and reprised his role from the acclaimed Los Angeles production at the Mark Taper Forum. He made his Broadway debut as Joe Gillis in "Sunset Boulevard," opposite Betty Buckley, with whom he starred in the London re-launch at the Adelphi Theatre. He also received a Laurence Olivier Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical in the premiere production of "The Fix," directed by Sam Mendes ("American Beauty") at the Donmar Warehouse in London.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Barrowman moved with his family to Joliet, Illinois when he was 8. During his high school years there, he was inspired by his singer mother and encouraged by his executive father to pursue his love of music and drama. After graduation, he attended the U.S. International University in San Diego on a full music and drama scholarship. In 1989, Barrowman relocated to England to study theater and immediately landed the starring role opposite Elaine Paige in "Anything Goes."
Other notable stage roles include the Beast in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" at the Dominium Theatre in London, Chris in "Miss Saigon", the title role in "Matador," opposite Stefanie Powers, Raoul in "The Phantom of the Opera," Alex in the Irish premiere of "Aspects of Love" and Brandon in the suspense play "Rope." Barrowman hosted two BBC-TV children's shows for two years and a daily talk show on England's Channel 5. Among his numerous recordings are "John Barrowman: Aspects of Lloyd Webber" and a new solo album "Reflections from Broadway," which was released last year.
Barrowman is also a member of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, an organization dedic ated to promoting outstanding achievements in young people. Each year, the Duke of Edinburgh and Barrowman present the awards to exceptional youths and the ceremony has taken the actor to Buckingham Palace and other royal venues throughout England.
An avid collector of TV memorabilia, GI Joes and action-figures, Barrowman once made about $8,000 on a naked Barbie he bought for 10 pounds at a British toy fair, but so far he hasn't been tempted to part with his original Angie Dickinson "Police Woman" doll.
Barrowman, who owns two houses in London, is in the process of relocating to Los Angeles with his two dogs, Penny and Lewis.
