From the show:
One of the most successful musical theater composers of all time takes audiences behind the scenes in Unmasked, a world-premiere musical featuring stories and songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s remarkable life and celebrated work. Based on his recently released autobiography, this funny and warm musical portrait offers an intimate look at Lloyd Webber’s five decades in the spotlight and beyond, from his quirky family and bohemian youth in London to the creation of such smash hits as Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, and Sunset Boulevard. You’ll hear new and sometimes unexpected interpretations of his best-loved songs, rediscovered gems, and some new material specially written for this production.
