With masterfully penned melodies and poignant adaptations, Webber's shows have become legends unto themselves.

In 54 Sings Andrew Lloyd Webber, performers from Broadway shows, touring companies, and beyond will unite to showcase some of the most beloved of this composer's hits (The Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar) alongside some of his lesser-known works (Starlight Express, The Likes of Us).
