From making his theatre debut with the Australian Opera at the age of 19 in A Midsummer Night's Dream, to debuting on Broadway this week in Annie, Anthony Warlow has come full circle.
Warlow's theatre credits include Guys and Dolls, Man of La Mancha, My Fair Lady, The Secret Garden, Grease the Arena Spectacular, A Little Night Music and creating the role of Enjolras in the Australian production of Les Misérables.
Warlow also starred in the Australian world premiere of Dr Zhivago, but most notably, the performance he would be most regarded for is the title role in the 1990 and 2007-2009 Australian productions, of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. This saw him receive the prestigious Advance Australia Award for Contribution to Music Theatre in 1991 for his performance.
He has also achieved Gold and Platinum sales of his solo albums and in 1998 Anthony was honored by the nation and the National Trust being elected a Living National Treasure.
This week, Anthony Warlow fulfilled the dream that all music theatre performers aspire to. Warlow debuted on Broadway, at the Palace Theatre, in his revised role of Daddy Warbucks in Annie.
Reviews are starting to come in and it's no surprise, they're glowing. The Hollywood Reporter and The New York Times praised Warlow's "impressive Broadway debut" in the production and for "inflecting his songs with unexpected emotional variety".
Warlow said when asked what took him so long to star on Broadway; “it really is about planets aligning. I feel very comfortable, I feel right and ready for it.”
