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.

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...

When ABBA Wrote Music for the Cold War-Themed Musical, Chess: “One of the Best Rock Scores Ever Produced for the Theatre” (1984)

So this book is a valuable tool for me, to be familiar enough with lots of different processes. Kind of like a band teacher who can play lots of different instruments.My biggest overall takeaway from the book is th...
