James Barbour born April 25, is an American singer and Broadway actor. It was announced in January that Barbour would take the role of Phantom in the Broadway musical Phantom of the Opera. He started a holiday-concert series inlaunching it at Sardis restaurant in New York singing many Holiday classics.
Below I have compiled a list of relevant facts relating to James Barbour and sources to those facts so that others might know the controversy that overtook the Broadway community today when it was announced that he would be the new Phantom in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway at the Majestic Theatre. You should all be aware that the theater personnel have been notified of the entire situation, and they are prepared to take action, should it be necessary. Just as a reminder: the theater is considered private property, so anyone thought to be loitering or trespassing will be removed from the vicinity.
A Broadway actor admitted on Thursday that in he seduced a year-old girl who visited him backstage, and agreed as part of a plea bargain to reveal that admission to anybody he works for in film, television or theater for up to the next three years. Barbour told Justice Micki A. Scherer of State Supreme Court in Manhattan that the girl visited him in his dressing room before the final curtain call and that he fondled her, knowing that she was only 15 years old.
Obviously if sexually assaulting a girl is a mistake, then your expectations for mistakes must be really high, therefore very few people in this world have made mistakes. I am trying to find links to posts that explain why this Barbour thing is a problem, but I am having trouble because in the last month many of them have been deleted. Back to Barbour.
As an actor I have the cool job of being able to continually create and discover new things not only in life but within myself. Discovery puts the fun in life. Hey gang!
