BWW TV: BROADWAY SESSIONS Celebrates Living Legend Andrew Lloyd Webber

Broadway became just a little more Broadway this last week as CATS made it's return to the Great White Way. Whether or not you think Cats is a ground breaker or a punch line, one thing is certain, the man behind the music is a living legend. Andrew Lloyd Webber has been an ubiquitous part of any theatre fans experience for decades. From those first chilling organ chords in Phantom (which still gets me every time- then again I wore my Phantom T-shirt to have my 8th grade school photos taken); to the synth pop of Starlight Express; to the irresistible bubble gum goodness of Joseph; it's hard not to walk out of a Lloyd Webber show not humming the tunes. He's had hits (um, Cats is BACK), he's had misses (The Woman in White) he's blazed trails (JC Superstar is arguably the first and finest rock musical) and has written a masterpiece of a score or two along the way (Evita, and anyone remember Aspects of Love? Divine). We're celebrating the kitties' return with a Broadway Sessions stroll down memory lane with the Lord. Let the memories live again...

Featuring- Paige Davis, Chris Newcomer, Ariana DeBose, current School of Rock'er John Arthur Greene, Phantom alum Jeremy Stolle, Tony winner Lena Hall, Frankie James Grande, Maddy Trumble, Zachary Noah Piser, Josh Tolle, Gina Santare and a very special rendition of the Phantom title tune by yours truly and the luscious Emily McNamara... well, you'll see.
