"Yes I suppose probably my most famous shows are more or less completely threw written and through composed. Because I like writing that way because does it means that as a composer. I'm I'm in control of the dramatic arc of the evening and it's the music is driving along with the story but look I just did. School of Rock in School of rock is something that absolutely has to have a script because it the tempo of the whole thing has to be driven with dialogue as well as music so there is no rule. That's but that's what we talked to that. But I didn't get from him what I really wanted to get out in. which is how his personality as a musician completely changed when he was running with Hammerstein compared to these early years when he was riding with Lawrence Heart? And I mean you could see a little bit of the Rogers that you find in Hammerstein occasionally additionally in the world that he did with hard but it's like two different people. That's what I wanted to ask him and he kept on. Have you found that that when you work when work with Tim. Rice that there's a different interlude Weber. That comes out then I did. I didn't really think so. I mean shatteringly. Of course the last piece I wrote with Tim Rice in nineteen seventy six. So I haven't written with him since apart from very occasional little things where we perhaps have added something to Jersey for. We wrote a song for the movie of Evita but we haven't written a full length piece or anything substantial together enough breath full. Well Gosh not seventy six fourteen years. Isn't it on yet. One still talks about it well. Naturally that's because Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Mhm Rice's musicals have had staying power and revival power last summer in London. You could have gone to a new production of Joseph SUV and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat. Jesus Christ superstar and Evita if you could have managed to get a ticket and then there was the the two thousand eighteen NBC television live concert version of Jesus Christ superstar starring John Legend as Jesus and Sarah Barilla's as Mary Magdalene.

"Here you are a teenager. You're sitting at the piano. Play the melody for Tim. Bryce how does it work. Can you tell us how the creative process worked. Well I mean with anything to do musical theater. which is really what I do? I mean you can handwrite melody's in isolation yes. Of course we can think of the mime in any time they could come in the mid. I could think of one in the middle of this interview But really eh with musicals everything starts and finishes with the story. I am a firm believer that a great musical school can't carry a bad story whereas a really great story can carry an okay musical school. I could give many examples of that but you're uh well give us really great example of a of a great story carrying on carrying but service by fantastic. School would be Romeo Juliet Westside westside story. Or if you WANNA go. Shakespeare hamlet the lung king because the Lion King is really the story of handed and it. Those are role great stories. And in my case I I found that I don Sutton musicals. Where perhaps the story isn't really strong enough and no matter what I? I think that the musical never really have been as successful as it wouldn't be if it had been a great story rates to look at look at the story of Joseph is wonderful because it's very simple primal tale about Jealousy and then redemption and forgiveness us and that's private sale. I mean the story. I mean thinking that the Tim Rice wants the story of will the last seven days of Jesus Christ is pretty good and the of course the one show that you come round and say well. He's talking nonsense about great story would be cats because cats hasn't really a story That was that was me trying to do something that I hadn't done before I mean my mother used to read me.

Oh He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard the flying squad's despair but when they reached the scene of crime. mcavan is is not and Tim. Rice on was like to really right to melodies but with cats I wanted to do was to see if I could set existing verse because I'd never done that before so I started setting the terms thinking to them as a concept piece and and with VIP because Valerie Alia to tears. Elliot's widow gave me some other poems which would not actually published as zones possum. I thought I'd got something bigger. I wasn't sure what it was. And that evolved into cats the musical which was very very much about dance which was happening. In Britain at the time and a whole load of areas of the Vai hadn't really got into but primarily. It started because I wanted to see if I could set existing poetry to Music Matt Tees Cat. He's called the hidden for. He's a master a criminal who can defy the law. He's the momentum.
