    Andrew Lloyd Webber

    Andrew Lloyd Webber, Baron Lloyd-Webber (South Kensington, London, March 22, 1948) is a British composer, writer, author, producer and director, director of numerous plays at the end of the 20th century. He has produced 16 musicals, two soundtracks and a Latin Requiem Mass. His awards include three Tonys, three Grammys, an Oscar, an Emmy, seven Oliviers and a Golden Globe.

    His company, Really Useful Group, is one of the most important in London. Some of the songs from his theater plays, such as Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina (from Evita) and Pie Jesu (from his Requiem Mass) have been successful in Europe and America outside theatrical performances and have been sung by many artists.

    Lloyd Webber had a string of back-to-back hits throughout the ’70s and ’80s collaborating with lyricist Tim Rice. The two were commissioned to write Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for the Edinburgh Institute. The musical was a success; parts of the work were rewritten and produced at the Edinburgh Festival.

    Lloyd Webber and Rice continued to collaborate, producing Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita. Both were first released on albums before being brought to the stage. After the premiere of Evita, the collaboration between the two broke down.

    For the libretto for Cats, Lloyd Webber based it on a play by T.S. Eliot, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, a childhood favorite of Lloyd Webber. Cats became the musical work that has been on the bill for the longest time: more than 20 years. He later wrote Starlight Express and an adaptation of the story of The Phantom of the Opera written by Gastón Leroux.

    Some of his musicals have been brought to the big screen. Jesus Christ Superstar in 1973 directed by Norman Jewison, Evita in 1996 directed by Alan Parker with Madonna as the lead, The Phantom of the Opera in 2004 directed by Joel Schumacher and Cats in 2019 directed by Tom Hooper.

    Lloyd Webber was commissioned to compose a piece for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics: the song Amigos para siempre, recorded by Sarah Brightman and Josep Carreras.

    In 2009 he composed the theme that represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow, ‘It’s My Time’, performed by Jade Ewen. Lloyd Webber set himself the challenge of returning the United Kingdom to the good positions that had previously characterized it in this contest, and he succeeded, taking the theme to fifth place in the final. He accompanied Jade on the piano for her performance.

    Cats

    Cats is a musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber from T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats collection of poems. Its plot revolves around the Jelic cat tribe during the night when they make ‘the jelic choice’ and decide which of them will be reborn into a new existence. Among his famous songs, the theme ‘Memory’ stands out, which has become a standard and has been covered by multiple artists.

    Directed by Trevor Nunn and choreographed by Gillian Lynne, the musical debuted in 1981 in the West End and made its way to Broadway a year later, winning numerous awards including the Olivier and Tony for Best Musical.

    The original London production ran for twenty-one years and the New York one for eighteen, both setting new records. Actresses Elaine Paige and Betty Buckley, who originated the Grizabella character in London and Broadway respectively, are especially associated with this musical.

    Cats ranks fourth on the list of longest-running shows in Broadway history and sixth on the West End list. In addition, it has been released in numerous countries throughout the world and has been translated into many languages. In 2019 it was brought to the big screen under the direction of Tom Hooper.
