Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Bad Cinderella” Is Closing On Broadway, Ending His 43-Year Streak Of Having A Show On The Great White Way
Legendary musical composer Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is having a rough one as his newest musical, Bad Cinderella, is a flop and will be leaving Broadway this summer. Once Bad Cinderella closes, ALW’s 43-year streak of having a show running on Broadway will come to an end. The Phantom of the Opera ended its record-breaking 35-year run last month. Poor guy–and he really needed a win after the Cats movie!
If you’re a Brit, then I’m sure your vocal cords are sore (and not in a sexy way) from loudly chanting that oath of allegiance to King Charles III on his Coronation Day. Or your vocal cords are sore from loudly snoring while sleeping through King Chuck’s Corny because you don’t give one shit about it. Whatever the case, King Charles and Queen Camilla’s bloomers filled with panty pudding royale today as they were crowned during the scaled-back three-day Coronation event that is costing British taxpayers ONLY $125 million. King Charles and Queen Camilla’s crowning ceremony happened at Westminster Abbey today and featured a spotlight-stealing cameo from little Prince Louis and a quick appearance by Prince Harry, whose ass is already on a plane back to California for his son Prince Archie’s fourth birthday.
When A Strange Loop took home the Tony award for Best Musical at last night’s Tony Awards, Jennifer Hudson became the 17th quadruple threat to earn the highly coveted PMTAOEE, better known as the Philip Michael Thomas Award for Overall Excellence in Entertainment, even better known as the EGOT. And she didn’t even have to break a sweat or unhinge her jaw for it! Jennifer won her Tony as a producer of the Pulitzer Prize-winning show and shares the Tony with RuPaul Charles, Don Cheadle, Alan Cumming, Ilana Glazer, Mindy Kaling, and Billy Porter among others. But thanks to her 2021 Daytime Emmy for an animated short called Baba Yaga, she was able to close the loop and put a PeriodT! On her EGO status.
Open Post: Hosted By Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber Declaring That He Hated The “Cats” Movie So Much That He Got A Dog
Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber hated Cats as much as the rest of us even though he’s responsible for it too. Although, he’s differentiating between the movie version and his stage production. And in a profile for Variety, Sir ALW that he was so “emotionally damaged” from the film version of his musical (same) that he went out and got a dog. Welp, he must’ve seen the butthole version!
Andrew Lloyd Webber has more money than God, not to mention every award imaginable––he’s one of 15 EGOTs. He is one of the most successful composers in history, responsible for dozens of huge Broadway musicals, including Cats, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar. And even HE couldn’t turn Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” into anything better than the original.
I don’t have kids so I’m excused from knowing anything about whatever it is Disney has been pumping into the minds of impressionable youth. But apparently, Disney+ has some heavy hitters creating content for housebound children, including newly minted EGOT, Alan Menken. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alan won his first-ever (competitive) Emmy for “best original song in a children’s, young adult or animated program” at yesterday’s Daytime Emmy awards (most of the awards were already presented last month). The song, Waiting in the Wings, is from the animated series Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure. I’m sure Patti LuPone sent him a very nice card that read “While I don’t particularly enjoy your little Disney songs, you are by far the greatest EGOT winner since Robert Lopez,” Robert being the last person to EGOT before Andrew Lloyd Webber in 2018 (along with Tim Rice and John Legend).
