John Barrowman will host a brand new All Star Musicals alongside a panel of esteemed West End and Broadway talent, led by theatre legend Elaine Paige.
“I can’t wait to bring something fabulous to the TV screens, working with new friends and teaming up with some special old friends, this should be a great night of entertainment – let’s make All Star Musicals Fabulous.” – John Barrowman
Seven famous faces will be flexing their theatrical muscles as they embark on the ultimate musical theatre masterclass in a show stopping one night spectacular. Each of the celebrities, who were selected for their stand out performance skills, will be aiming to impress the West End audience, as well as the panel, as they take to the stage at the hallowed London Palladium with a musical number.
The show will feature numbers from a range of notable musicals, both contemporary and traditional, with the audience deciding at the end of the night whose performance wowed them the most. All Star Musicals will also feature very special performances from John and Elaine, as well as other critics who are yet to be announced.
The celebrities will be supported by a spectacular West End chorus line as well as professional choreographers and vocal coaches behind the scenes.
“All Star Musicals is the perfect opportunity for me to channel two of my greatest passions – musical theatre and mentoring. I’m looking forward to following the celebrities on their journey to performing on London’s most prestigious stage, and of course it’s an added bonus to have a front row seat on the night itself!” – Elaine Paige
The show, produced by ITV Studios label Shiver, was first aired in 2017 with Freddie Flintoff as host and Michael Crawford guiding talent including Nicky Campbell, Sally Phillips and Lucy Fallon.
