Andrew Lloyd Webber

And it sort of jogged a memory of something that I read at school and I read it, and I thought God this is it. So you never can tell. I could find something this afternoon.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:06]
Because her voice is, it's like the muscles and it develops all the time. That was the fantastic thing for us.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:18]
Corny answer is of course is that everyone who wants musicals are children in different ways, aren't they? So you think of them in different ways. There are things of mine I'm sorry haven't come here.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:29]
Here's the truth. The proposed top rate of income tax is not 50 per cent. It is 50 per cent plus 1.5 per cent national insurance paid by employees plus 13.3 per cent paid by employers. That's not 50 per cent. Two years from now, Britain will have the highest tax rate on earned income of any developed country.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:40]
I began to think, now is the time. I found quite a lot of opposition in Hollywood about the idea of doing a film musical and we ended up having to buy the rights back. I'm glad we did because it meant John and I were able to make exactly the movie we wanted.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:51]
I guess the thing is that we remained huge friends after the original Phantom movie, when we decided it wouldn't take place and we just saw each other socially over the years so we were friends.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:02]
I said, look, do you think you could bring Gerry through, and they said yeah, absolutely, they thought that. Joel was very keen to cast him. If all my music team were happy, I was happy.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:48]
I think back at the time, if it had been 1988, I would have thought Michael and Sarah probably would have been cast but I don't think, I think it's much better that the girl is younger and if Sarah would have been 26 or 27 then.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:00]
I think that the wonderful advantage we have in the film of being able to cast a girl as young as Emmy and which we couldn't do in the theatre of course because no girl of 16 or 17 could sing 8 shows a week, couldn't sing two.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:22]
I think the thing's that perhaps sad really is that younger people haven't come in and I think it must have been absolutely fantastic to have worked in the 50's when you had all of the great Broadway composers and when West Side Story didn't win the Tony Award.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:33]
I would have gone right ahead but the only thing, the only phenomenon that's going on now of course, which is different in my experiences, is that you are getting things planted in the Net by people about the Woman in White on the Net. That's not a nice change.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:43]
I'm going to take the kids away over Christmas but I don't, I've written 14 musicals now, I don't want to rush into doing something just for the sake of doing it. I want to do it when I find a story.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:54]
In Evita I wasn't really hugely involved with it. I gave a little bit of help but they needed a bit of technical help on the movie and so some of my music people went in at the end of the movie and helped out with it.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:31]
It doesn't stand up to huge intellectual scrutiny.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:42]
It must have been an extraordinary time. I guess the worrying thing about musical theatre to me, is if you look at the London season this year, mine is actually the only one to have come in.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:01]
Negative things, and they were all deliberate and I'm not going to say who they were but I know who they were and it was in the business, and that's not a good sign.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:12]
Superstar was made so early in my career I had nothing to do with it at all. The first time I saw it was the opening screening.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:23]
The next few years are going to be horrendous in the UK. The last thing we need is a Somali pirate-style raid on the few wealth creators who still dare to navigate Britain's gale-force waters.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:36]
Two years ago I hadn't even thought of the Woman in White, and I was doing a television show and I said I hadn't found a story and the next day somebody rang me and said have you ever thought of the Woman in White.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:45]
We felt we had to know something of his back story. I don't think people in the cinema would just accept that he's there. I think we had to learn how he (got there).More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:55]
Well the least favourite question is the one that one's asked particularly about in Japan is what's the difference between theatre and cinema and I think, well, that's about eighty bucks.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:08]
Well we'd just seen Gerry. I think he wanted somebody who had that authority and was handsome. The thing is, he's a big hunk isn't he? All I can say, if you look at his chat line, or the Phantom website, it's quite worrying. Because the girls really seem to love him.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:18]
When we finally came to start work on this, the joy was it was only Joel and I, we didn't have to answer to anybody, and we didn't have to submit a screen play or anything like that. We just wrote it and then made it.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [07/18/2011 05:07:29]
And it sort of jogged a memory of something that I read at school and I read it, and I thought God this is it. So you never can tell. I could find something this afternoon.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Because her voice is, it's like the muscles and it develops all the time. That was the fantastic thing for us.More Andrew Lloyd Webber [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
