A stage show based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s life and career is being developed and will be workshopped at a London theatre owned by the composer next month.
It will be based on Lloyd Webber’s recently published autobiography, Unmasked, and is described as “highly experimental” and a “not so reverential look” at the composer’s career.
Also titled Unmasked, the workshop, which will include some songs, is written ‘with Richard Curtis’ and directed by Laurence Connor.
The performances will take place from November 29 to December 1 and will act as a workshop for a planned production in the US.
The workshop performances will take place at the Other Palace, which is owned by Lloyd Webber.
Cast members include Siobhan Dillon, Ben Forster, Tyrone Huntley, Rosanna Hyland, Ria Jones, Stephen Leask, Anna O’Byrne and Michael Xavier.
