Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber has created some of the most memorable musicals on Broadway. But with all of the shows closed, musical and Broadway fans cannot see those musicals.
Lord Webber has created a channel on You Tube he call “The Show Must Go On” where he is offering some of those iconic musicals for free.
Once every two weeks a new musical will begin playing at 2pm eastern time and will be available for 48 hours.
The series kicked off on April 3 with “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. While the airing of Dreamcoat has finished, fans can still see Donny Osmond – who played Joseph – singing “Any Dream Will Do”.
The next musical scheduled to air also has a biblical theme and is appropriate for the season. It will be “Jesus Christ Superstar” and begin on April 10.
While the exact titles were not listed, Lord Webber will continue to offer up more of his productions in the coming weeks.
Other streaming platforms are also offering up Broadway productions…
Netflix is airing “Jersey Boys”, “Oh, Hello on Broadway”, “Springsteen on Broadway”, “Shrek the Musical”, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”, “Mike Birbiglia: The New One”, and “American Son”.
