From Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (1968) to Bad Cinderella (2023), his work has been consistently seen on world stages. Before the Covid pandemic hit, Lloyd Webber had shows continually running in the West End for 48 years and on Broadway for 41, with School of Rock being the first British musical to have its world premiere on Broadway. When Sunset Boulevard joined School Of Rock, Cats and Phantom of the Opera, he equalled Rodgers and Hammerstein’s record of four shows running simultaneously on Broadway. Lloyd Webber also wrote the music for Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, Aspects of Love, Starlight Express, and Song and Dance.

He is one of the select group of artists with EGOT status, having received an Emmy, four Grammys (including Best Contemporary Classical Composition for Requiem), an Oscar and eight Tony Awards (including the 2018 Special Tony for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre). He has also won seven Oliviers and a Golden Globe – and his honours include a Classic Brit award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, the Praemium Imperiale, the Richard Rodgers Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre, a BASCA Fellowship, and the Kennedy Center Honor.

Lloyd Webber has also co-produced his own shows, including Cats and The Phantom Of The Opera. As a solo producer, he presented the groundbreaking Bombay Dreams, which introduced the double Oscar winning Bollywood composer AR Rahman to the Western stage.

Lloyd Webber is passionate about the importance of musical education and diversity in the arts. The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation provides 30 performing arts scholarships every year for talented students with financial need and supports a range of projects such as the Music In Secondary School Trust and commissioning research into diversity in theatre.
