Anything Goes Summary

Anything Goes: The Autobiography by John Barrowman

With graduation looming, the school guidance counsellor asked John what he wanted to do with his life. John replied, "I want to go into the arts." The counsellor said "Okay, but what do you want to do to fall back on." John replied, "If I have to have something to fall on, it will have to be my ass.""Anything Goes" traces the life and career of John Barrowman from his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his first big break starring alongside Elaine Paige in "Anything Goes". Since then, John has made a name for himself with unmatched West End achievements, including an Olivier Award nomination, and success in the movies "The Producers" and "De-Lovely". Television success was also assured when Torchwood won a Best Drama BAFTA. John also lays bare his personal life: his emigration as a child, coming out to his family, turning down a job at Disney and his 2006 civil partnership with long-term partner Scott Gill. "Anything Goes" is revelatory and insightful, told with real heart and characteristic Barrowman charm. This is a wonderful tale of how one boy achieved his dreams.
