Lloyd Webber To Go All Sondheim On Us#1

Due to start a short tour next May, before finding a small West End house late 2009 /early 2010, is a new show celebrating the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber (and collaborators).
This is certainly not the first time a show has celebrated The Lord as the major concerts by Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman -'The Music Of The Night' etc- have been world wide sellouts for the last 20 years.
This is a new twist. The show is to be in the style of 'Side By Side By Sondeim', a show that itself has been presented endlessly over the past 33 years. It will be presented and sung by a cast of 6 or 8 and based around a small group of musicians -maybe 3 or 4 and presented cabaret style keeping all the numbers from ballads to production numbers down to the minimum.
'Better The Webber You Know!' is slated to preview at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley early next summer.

A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Well, for better or worse, it will certainly put his work under the theatrical microscope.
