I had mentioned on the show (or was it on Terminally Single when we talked about Torchwood) that I didn't think John Barrowman was right for the role of Albin/Zaza in 'La Cage aux Folle' - too young and good looking. I heard him talk on a recent podcast - here, if you're interested - about doing the role and how people might think we was too young but that he got Jerry Herman's blessing (in fact Jerry said it was written with 40ish characters in mind, it's just usually been cast older, but that could be spin). I gotta say, he looks pretty good, if a little "Anne Margaret on steroids" - look at those arms! The blonde shot looks like it's been photoshopped to give him thinner arms and legs - and airbrushed to death.
