John Barrowman Injured During Panto After Falling Off Horse

John Barrowman has been starring as Jack as part of Jack and the Beanstalk in a theatre in Glasgow, however, a brief moment of tragedy befell a performance recently when Barrowman fell of a horse and had to be taken to hospital.

An spokeswoman for the theatre said: "During today's matinee performance of Jack and the Beanstalk, John Barrowman suffered an injury on stage and has been taken to hospital as a precaution... His understudy, Greg Barrowman, has already stepped in to finish the rest of the show."

American Barrowman has appeared in pantos Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasglow for the past three years, although the last two years have gone by event free and saw him play Aladdin and Robinson Crusoe previously. The Jack and the Beanstalk production seems a little cursed, as Janette Tough, who appeared in it in 2004, fell from the beanstalk and suffered a fractured skull. 

The show ends on Sunday so it's unclear as to whether he'll return to finish his run, but he loves panto so will surely make it back if he can. According to the Scottish Daily Record he said: "I love coming up and doing panto in Glasgow at Christmas... There's a sense of humour up here that is unlike any other in the country and it's the same kind of sense of humour that the three of us have, so it goes over very well."
