Andrew Lloyd Webber (Yale Broadway Masters Series) by John Snelson

Andrew Lloyd Webber is the most famousand most controversialcomposer of musical theater alive today. Hundreds of millions of people have seen his musicals, which includeCats, The Phantom of the Opera, Starlight Express, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita,andSunset Boulevard.Even more know his songs. Lloyd Webbers many awards include seven Tonys and three Grammysbut he has nonetheless been the subject of greater critical vitriol than any of his artistic peers. Why have both the man and his work provoked such extreme responses? Does he challenge his audiences, or merely recycle the comfortable and familiar? Over three decades, how has Lloyd Webber changed fundamentally what a musical can be? In this sustained examination of Lloyd Webbers creative career, the music scholar John Snelson explores the vast range of influences that have informed Lloyd Webbers work, from film, rock, and pop music to Lloyd Webbers own life story. This rigorous and sympathetic survey will be essential reading for anyone interested in Lloyd Webbers musicals and the world of modern musical theater that he has been so instrumental in shaping.
