John Barrowman to play Robin Hood + a podcast interview

John Barrowman is set to play Robin Hood in a Christmas pantomime at the New Theatre in Cardiff in an attempt to save the New Theatre from closure. The pantomime will be performed twice a day (72 times) during the holiday season.

Cardiff council finance executive Mark Stephens said: "John Barrowman in Robin Hood could help turn around the New Theatre.

"Our basic problem is lack of income. People are not going there."

Barrowman's casting has already sparked a sales frenzy, with a reported 35,000 tickets already sold.

You can listen to John's interview with The Stage's Alistair Smith, and he talks about his role in La Cage aux Folles and more.
