The first full song has been released. I really love it. Also, Andrew Lloyd Webber's persistence and determination to bring theatre back as soon as possible brings tears to my eyes.

I love the song, and of course for any ALW fan that big piano interlude mid-song reminds me of his glory days. I’m very excited for this!

Oh that’s beautiful. I’m so excited to see this and yeah, Webber’s promise that the chandelier will rise again, also brought a tear to my eye.

That song is gorgeous.  I hear a bit of "Pie Jesu" & I'm here for it.

I just love watching composers play their material without sheet music. The song is so embedded in them, they can just pull it out whenever it's needed. I hear a bit of "Surrender" from Sunset in this, too. Not a bad thing. :)

Both pieces that he has released so far immediately took up residence in my brain. Love it.

These two songs we've heard are pretty good melodically and lyrically. I think the most beautiful parts we've heard is the really beautiful repeated string of notes in "Far Too Late" when she sings, "...I would show you how I'm sorry, how I long to clean the slate" and all the other times she sings those notes. I just wish "Bad Cinderella" didn't have some phrases that sound so much like "In My Own Little Corner"!

"Far Too Late" is absolutely stunning! "Bad Cinderella" has actually grown on me. I am assuming that ALW got permission from the RnH Estates to use the IMOLC melody.

I seriously need to plan a trip to see these shows! I'm so glad Carrie has her own show!
