Andrew Lloyd Webber will be streaming, free-of charge, one of his musicals for 48 hours every weekend, starting each Friday night. The first one, currently streaming, is a 2000 production of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond, Joan Collins, and Richard Attenborough.
It will be available to watch on the YouTube channel The Show Must Go On for 48 hours, starting on Friday at 7pm GMT. The series will continue every Friday for the next few weeks.
Next weekend’s musical will be Lloyd Webber’s 2012 production of Jesus Christ Superstar, starring Tim Minchin, Mel C. and Chris Moyles.
(Note that the time given is GMT (or UTC), which is one hour earlier than the current daylight savings time in the UK.)
I am not a huge fan of Webber but I did love the 1973 film version of Jesus Christ Superstar. This was perhaps because his some-time lyricist Tim Rice did a superb job with the lyrics for that show. I don’t know how well this version will compare musically with that film. But I do know that Webber is immensely popular and so I pass this information on for those who like his work and would like to see more.
