Andrew Lloyd Webber and his team have launched “The Shows Must Go On” on Youtube, a channel dedicated to streaming and uploading filmed versions of his theatrical catalog.
Each show will be available on the channel for 48 hours after its premiere time (currently 5am AEDT/4am AEST), with a new release coming each week from this Saturday April 4th.
The first show is the 2000 film adaptation of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which stars Donny Osmond, Richard Attenborough, Joan Collins, and Maria Friedman.
Next week’s show (11/4) is the 2012 proshot of Jesus Christ Superstar, with Ben Forster, Mel C, and Australia’s own Tim Minchin. Further releases are yet to be announced.
