‘The Shows Must Go On’ YouTube Channel Will Give You Free Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals

Posted on Monday, April 6th, 2020 by Chris Evangelista

If you're missing some fine musical entertainment, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Universal Studio's have teamed up to air some of Mr. Webber's musicals for "FREE".

Are you missing seeing musicals on the big stage? Well, here’s the next best thing: a YouTube Channel. Okay, look, watching something on YouTube isn’t going to really compare to the theatre experience, but we all have to make do with what we have. In an attempt to bring a West End and Broadway experience to viewers, here comes The Shows Must Go On YouTube Channel, which features free productions of some of Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals. We can only hope this is all building towards Cats.

Youtube Channel:  The Shows Must Go On!




Above you can find a very casual looking Andrew Lloyd Webber introducing The Shows Must Go On YouTube Channel, which hopes to provide “theatre lovers with a West End and Broadway experience in their own homes, online for free.”

Each show drops weekly at 11:00 A.M. PST/2:oo P.M. EST for a limited 48-hour period online – no charge or sign up required – giving fans of musical theatre an opportunity to enjoy beloved shows, from their living rooms. So you better watch them when posted because they will not be repeated when they expire.

Future productions will be announced soon. Webber has a ton of hits to choose from: Phantom of the Opera, Evita, and of course, Cats, just to name a few.

In addition to the full-length shows, there will also be “clips of famous performances and behind-the-scenes footage will be uploaded regularly to the channel, so fans can continue to get their theatre fix at home.” And while this is all free, you could also make a charitable donation to the organizations listed on the channel, which include Acting for Others, Broadway Cares and Actors Benevolent Fund. It would be a nice thing to do! If you can afford it.

Last Friday April 3, 2020, aired the 2000 adaptation of Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, starring Donny Osmond, Maria Friedman, Richard Attenborough, and Joan Collins.

Next up this Friday, April 10, 2020  Jesus Christ Superstar, the arena production featuring Tim Minchin, Melanie C, and Chris Moyles will air.
