Who Will Play Evita in June 2006?...

Barrowman & the Tardis… Jones & the Boys???

By • West End
Coronation Street’s Suranne Jones is the only woman in the 19-strong company for A Few Good Men, which starts performances at the West End’s Theatre Royal Haymarket in August. She plays Lt Cdr Joanne Galloway, the part taken by Demi Moore in the 1992 film version of Aaron Sorkin’s original 1989 stage play. While she’s not too worried about being outnumbered (she expects to “feel like one of the boys”), at yesterday’s press conference for the new West End production (See News, 27 Jul 2005), Jones admitted that she had been very nervous about meeting her co-star and on-stage love interest Rob Lowe, of whom she’s been a long-time fan. “Rob was a big pin-up when I was at school,” she told journalists. What had she liked him in best? “I always liked him best on my bedroom wall, on my posters.” Meanwhile, John Barrowman acknowledged there may be some confusion with his two current roles “playing two military men named Jack”. In television’s Doctor Who, for which he’ll be returning for a second series, he’s Capt Jack Harkness; in A Few Good Men, he’s prosecutor Lt Jack Ross (who, to add to the confusion, was promoted to a captain in the Hollywood film). But Barrowman - best known to theatregoers for his many leading musical credits including Anything Goes, for which he won last year’s Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers’ Choice Award – is happy with both roles. As for his new-found television fame, he said yesterday: “It seems like the Tardis is going to dominate my life for a long time.”
