Audiences will delight in enjoying some of their favourite hits from the Andrew Lloyd Webber songbook in this power punch of a musical.
Some 25 songs from 55 years of the composer’s collaboration with some of the great lyricists in the modern music genre. Lloyd Webber may have had three wives in his personal life, but he has had at least ten lyricists in his musical harem.
What Music of the Night does, is provide a musical highway for four of our most seasoned musical theatre artists, Craig Urbani, Carly Graeme, Adrian Galliard and Stephanie Baartman, to take their glorious voices out for a high level full throttle ride.
It also affords an opportunity to introduce an extra ordinary new talent, Emma-Jean Galliard who is part of the father/daughter duo who has taken the internet by storm.
