Identitiy: Jason Donovan — What's Your Problem?

Mal Peachey, Vox, January 1993

Jason Donovan was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1968. Neighbours made him a teeny idol in 1986, and SAW made him a pop star. He won rave reviews for his part in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat but allegations over his sexuality led to his being awarded substantial damages against The Face on April 3. He recently released a version of 'As Time Goes By'. An album follows in the Spring. Donovan is attempting the transition from teen pop idol into adult artist, and consequently his problem is... identity.
