John Owen-Jones, Bring Him Home

 

There isn’t a singer-actor quite like John Owen-Jones in British musical theatre. Not just for his utter dedication to a role – he made history as the longest-serving Phantom in the West End’s Phantom of the Opera, playing it nearly 2,000 times – but also his extraordinary abilities that saw him become the youngest actor to have played Jean Valjean in Les Misérables: a role he has played repeatedly in the West End and on Broadway.

If those two shows have come to partly define him, and are duly represented on this new collection of musical favourites with selections from Phantom and from Les Misérables, his amazing vocal range is also on  sublime display in songs from other modern musical classics here from Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies to West Side Story and Miss Saigon. There’s also William Finn, Frank Wildhorn, Kander and Ebb, Stephen Schwartz  and Sondheim. It’s a voice like no other: caressing and creamy, fierce and fabulous by turns. But as he does onstage, he invests each song with real drama and insight, too.   It is a treat and a privilege to hear them collected here.”
