Any dream will do. Except this is all real…
Yes, you’ll get to enjoy a dash of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. You’ll get to taste a pinch of Jesus Christ Superstar. And, you’ll even get to experience a new, virtually orchestrated snippet of Phantom Of The Opera. ALL for no cost at all. [Featured Image: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Instagram]

Starting tomorrow (3 April), performances will be streamed on the all-new YouTube channel, suitably dubbed The Shows Must Go On.
First up, is the 1999 showing of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. It’s the film version of the tale that first came to life in 1968, when Andrew Lloyd Webber was just 19. Then, on the following Friday (10 April), Jesus Christ Superstar steps up. This stream is set to be the 2012 arena production of the beloved musical.
These two performances will hit the YouTube channel at 7pm UK time. You’ll have exactly 48 hours to catch them before they disappear off the internet, so don’t mess about!
That said, with Phantom Of The Opera, things a little different. The 72-year old legend orchestrated his own virtual rendition of “All I Ask Of You” with the help of the internet and group video calls. Give it a watch on YouTube here, it really is quite something.
So, that seems to be enough Andrew Lloyd Webber content to keep you entertained for a while! Who knows, this channel could open up for more plays in the future, should this lockdown drag on. Keep an eye on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Twitter page for some more video renditions of his arsenal of hit musical-anthems.
