The special, Andrew Lloyd Webber – The Royal Albert Hall Celebration, is the latest in the weekly free offerings from Lloyd Webber’s The Shows  Must Go On channel on YouTube, which was introduced to keep theatre alive during lockdown from the Coronavirus pandemic.

The initiative launched with 48-hour availability of a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, starring Donny Osmond. It was followed by Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera and, the current offering, the Phantom sequel, Love Never Dies.

The shows are streamed free but requests are made for donations to  The Actors Fund and other charities. Donations are encouraged to support industry professionals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Andrew Lloyd Webber – The Royal Albert Hall Celebration features some of the most memorable popular leads from Lloyd Webber hits – among them Elaine Paige, Glenn Close, Sarah Brightman, Michael Ball, Donny Osmond, Antonio Banderas and a dozen others.

The celebration features songs from Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sunset Boulevard, Evita, Cats,Starlight Express and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
