Lloyd Webber announces new musicalJuly 10, 2012 Tim WorstallMusic1 CommentAndrew Lloyd Webber: \’I fear for future of the arts\’ I think that\’s what he\’s saying at least…. previousFascinating about German banks, eh?nextDear God, can\’t Polly get anything right? 1 thought on “Lloyd Webber announces new musical” Nick Luke July 10, 2012 at 11:44 am No, no, no. What he’s making is the usual plea for MORE FUNDING. He owns most of the West End (theatres) and wants the state to support his arty friends. Having made his pile he doesn’t want to lose it by gambling on his own judgement as to what is commercial. He, and his friends, want the state to back ‘cutting edge, relevant’ theatre in his theatres. Some how I get the feeling that he may not have another blockbuster in him, and to fill the theatres with his own back catalogue may be seen as over self-indulgent.
