Lockdown Latest: Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber teams up with new YouTube channel to bring all of his musi
In these uncertain times we have very little distraction to help us escape the current situation. The things that used to help us relax, music, sport and theatre have all shut down as the U.K. is in Lockdown and many of the self employed people in these industries are suffering financially in this crisis. Luckily, one of the leading lights of the creative industries is leading the way in alleviating our boredom and helping us escape the World for a little while as he releases all of his musicals for 48 hours each weekend. This past weekend we were treated to Lloyd Webber’s first musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which originated as a 20 minute pop cantata written for a school. The modern show is now 1 hour and 20 minutes and this particular film of the stage show featured Donny Osmond as Joseph, Maria Friedman as the Narrator and Richard Attenborough as Jacob. The show received great reviews online and was watched by people all across the U.K. and beyond. Although the shows are free to watch Andrew is encouraging people to donate to three different charities; Acting for Others, Broadway Cares and the Actors Benevolent Fund. The next musical to be shown on The Shows Must Go On will Be Jesus Christ Superstar which premieres at 7pm on Good Friday and will be available until 7pm on Easter Sunday.
