Tim Rice: 'Evita was a bonkers idea'

As the great songwriter prepares to take Jesus Christ Superstar on a 50th birthday tour, he talks about penning hits, his idea for a new musical – and drinking from Lloyd Webber’s Georgian wine glassesTim Rice had a hunch the Oscar was in the bag. After all, he and Elton John had been responsible for three of the five nominations in the best song category. But, as he walked on stage that night in 1995, after Can You Feel the Love Tonight from The Lion King won, the tall, slightly awkward-looking...

RIP Hal Prince

I woke up today to the news that Hal Prince has died, at age 91.I never met Hal, but his impact on my life is profound. Everything I believe about the theatre, everything I do in the theatre, everything I make in the theatre, it all has roots in the work of the great Hal Prince. He changed everything.No other artist -- not Fosse, Tommy Tune, Sondheim, nobody -- has been more of an influence on the work I do with New Line. It was Hal Prince who taught me the poetry of staging a show, that audien...

The Unfashionable Mr. Lloyd Webber Writes A Memoir

It is fashionable among theater intellectuals to look down on Lloyd Webber’s musicals: their catchy tunes, their ripe orchestrations, their puzzling stories (“The story of Evita is simple” is perhaps the book’s most controversial claim, starkly undermined by the ensuing plot summary) and of course their commercial success. But by his own admission in “Unmasked,” […]

It's Time to Choose

One of the things I love about our process is that it's fairly leisurely, and we don't try to polish much at all early on. We don't really work scenes until we put the whole puzzle together. Many directors work the scenes individually till they're just perfect, then put them together; but I don't think that leads as easily to a sense of unity among all the scenes.A painter wouldn't do a sketch of just one corner of the picture, then paint that, then do a sketch of the next little section of it,...

The War of the Worlds review – a holographic Liam Neeson delivers apocalyptic news

HG Wells’ prose is the hero of Jeff Wayne’s full-blown musical revival, which has enough bombast to drown out any ringtones in the audienceThere was always an overlap between the concept double album and the stage musical: Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita were tried out on record before they reached the theatre. But another gatefold LP of the same era – Jeff Wayne’s 1978 electric oratorio version of the HG Wells novel The War of the Worlds – has taken 38 years,...

They Say the Neon Lights Are Bright...

I often rail against a Broadway-centric view of the American musical theatre, and against a lack of understanding of the new forms our art form has taken, among people working on and off Broadway. Of course, I have an understandable bias since New Line often resurrects outstanding musicals that the New York commercial theatre has screwed up.The coolest thing to happen to our art form lately is a proliferation of small companies across the country producing the kind of shows that used to need sa...
