“The Worst Idea In History” — ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ At 50

That phrase is how one potential investor rejected Andrew Lloyd Webber’s proposal to stage the rock opera he wrote with Tim Rice. (That’s why it first appeared as a concept album.) Here’s how Superstar got to Broadway— and what happened when it did. – The New York Times

Diana: The Musical Is Like Springtime For Hitler, But Real

There's a moment in Mel Brooks' immortal comedy classic "The Producers" where a Broadway audience sits stunned, their eyes wide, their mouths agape, as they take in a performance of a musical called "Springtime For Hitler." The production — "A Gay Romp With Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden," as the official subtitle tells us — is supposed to be a sure-fire flop, all part of a plan from shady con man/Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his accountant Leo Bloom. The two men have discovered they can...

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.

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfalfT1Iqmg Chess is amazing. The simplicity of its characters and plot (capture the king!) can be appreciated and understood by children; the complexity of its tactics can consume an adult life. Despite its medieval origins—and stumpers for us moderns like the strategic importance of a bishop on the battlefield—chess remains as much a potent allegory for power and its tactics as it was 1,500 years ago in India when it was called “chaturanga.”  The game ha...

Everything You Should Watch After You Stream ‘Howard’ on Disney+

Howard Ashman is, hyperbole be damned, one of the most important figures in the history of animation. It’s an impressive feat considering that he never once drew a character or directed an animated feature. You may not know his name, but Howard Ashman’s words have given life to some of the most beloved characters of modern Disney animation. What’s more, his lyrical compositions and collaboration with composer Alan Menken inspired the last 30 years of mainstream American animation in one way or...
