At just 26, award-winning West End and Broadway star John Owen-Jones became the youngest actor ever to play the role of ‘Jean Valjean’ in Les Misérables and was the first British actor ever to play the role in both the West End and on Broadway. He has also played ‘The Phantom’ in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera nearly 2000 times - more than any other actor in the show’s West End history.
Voted as one of the Greatest Ever Welsh Singers in a BBC Radio poll, John has performed many times with other distinguished musical voices including Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Bryn Terfel and Katherine Jenkins.
2018 is a busy year, when John will star as The Phantom in Tokyo and perform as a special guest of Katherine Jenkins on tour. He will also appear as a headline performer twice at the Royal Albert Hall and tours the UK this autumn to launch his fifth album, Spotlight.
