John has enjoyed critical acclaim for his award winning performances in the lead role of Jean Valjean in ‘Les Miserables’ and the title role in The Phantom of the Opera. John performed in New York this year where he appeared as a very special guest in a gala performance of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ to celebrate the show’s 25th year on Broadway. John is no stranger to the role with nearly 2000 performances as the ‘Opera Ghost’ and is considered by fans worldwide to be the definitive Phantom.
