They met in New York in the 19 seventies, where Ashman was running a black box theater. They yelled like Rodgers and Hammerstein and wrote the musical's Kurt Vonnegut's God Bless you, Mr Rosewater, and the unlikely hit little Shop of horrors. Pretty soon Ashman was courted by Jeffrey Katzenberg to come to Disney and help in animation department That was on the skids. I have a letter that I found in the Library of Congress. And it's a letter from Jeffrey Katzenberg. Don Hahn, a producer on beauty and the Beast directed the new documentary, Howard, says Howard. Thanks for talking the other day.

Over the years, Alan Menken has worked unused songs from the Disney animated musicals into their Broadway adaptations. So in a way, he's never stopped working with Howard Ashman. I wrote a song for Howard past Mile friend Donna When Tim Rice and I began work on the Broadway adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, I said, I'm going to take a piece of music and is this home? This is where I should learn to be happy. So that became part of the fabric of beauty and the beast of hell in this Mink and shared his memories for the documentary. When Don Hahn sent in the rough cut, he told the director, he had to write the score. Oh, my God! Was it a labor of love? I feel deeply connected to Howard. And I just felt that I wanted music that if he was directing and he would have wanted to put in there Composer says This was really like his final collaboration with Howard almost 30 years after he died, a new work with words by Ashman and tunes by Minkin. For NPR news. I'm Tim grieving.

I don't think i can either well because yeah hamilton to electric google ooh he rises from the i don't know like no i can't think of any musical sequels to all our musical yeah fans healthcare. There hit us up if you can if you can recommend like an actual like it hit music easy wool 'cause there was there was spiderman. Turn off the dark. Mark is more like it wasn't really a one off story though yeah so i don't and that was a flop youtube. Did the music and people died sterile sunday. One person died and a lot of people many people that die on the stage exactly turn off the dark anyway. Turn it off. What did i say anyway so the next. He did the wizard of oz so expected. It's basically the same as the movie as the nineteen thirty nine movie <hes> he did the book with jeremy sams but the the musical uses the original harold arlen and e y harburg songs from the film but also included some new songs by him and additional lyrics tim rice so after previews in the west end from february seventh two thousand eleven the musical opened on march first and closed on september second two thousand twelve <hes> uh-huh notably the role of dorothy was cast the two thousand ten british reality television show called over the rainbow in which danielle hope won the part k yeah <hes> and then the second the runner up became her under study so that's how that worked out so next one was called stephen ward which is a musical with a book and lyrics by don black and christopher hampton. The musical is based on the nineteen sixty three profumo affair involving the war minister john profumo and the socialites stephen ward who introduced profumo to his mistress christine keeler who was also involved with a russian spy. This is a real historical thing. The musicals world premiere was in london's west end at the aldwych theatre in the winter of two thousand thirteen and close at the end of march twenty fourteen it received mixed reviews from critics okay so like at this point is he funding his his own stuff. Is he still getting investors to give him money for these things because it sounds like he hasn't had a great return on investment in the last twenty three twenty eight years and he has enough money and he and a lot of these are being produced by his own company really useful group nope so really use useful apologies listeners so sorry in all of england england in the u._k. Yeah i think i think a lot of these are kind of his personal passion projects and it seems like a lot of these aren't talk to the scale besides maybe love never dies which was very large a lotta production and stuff like that these smaller things were not aw huge to put on you know like an orchestra a nice set a cast of maybe like you know five to nine. It's not huge so if they're they usually get their return on investment if not make a little bit of a prophet and he doesn't really need to make a profit at this point. He's kind of like i was gonna say. Peter gabriel like peter gabriel can do like elton john elton john doesn't need put out another album.

Andrew what do you could just play play Andrew and also just decided to pick you. Up I'm not a member of the house of lords. Anymore Resigned.

Become the most successful, and highest grossing show in history of Broadway well you. Know what, when you, rock musical you've got no clue what's going to happen with it I mean we we we, seemed when when we did in London and he'd seemed to have a pretty. Remarkable reaction But you you just simply don't know I mean I mean you guys know very very well With a musical there, I'm just one Kogen a, wheel which has got to have you. Know a, lot of, perfect perfect people involved, with it You know I'm I'm music but the stories go to be right the lyrics go to be right I was remember how prince wonderful director. Saying that, you can't listen to a musical is you can't look at it by which he meant that the design has to fit the musical I mean all. Of the ingredients have to come, together and it's very rare. That they come. Together in the kind. Of way that they didn't find, some, more they have done saying launching Hamilton any any of those shows it doesn't happen that'll musicals. Are hard they are hard to get right. Andrew one of the stories I love his is how you. Got the inspiration for found the opera you got it here, in New York City I believe at a at a bookstore Well yes in, a way that's true what. Happened was is. That before I got. Involved with phantom Sarah Brightman who, I, wasn't married to at the time but she was also kind of jokey version of the phantom. Of the opera with with real opera Arias. In it under she didn't sign it I kind of looked at, it with Cameron Mackintosh is something that we might produce but we did we we talked to the director of the rocky horror show Jim shaman Doc He he sort of, said you, know what is this subject you could think? About, Andrew and I I. Sit it'd be funny is is gonna jokey jokey. Thing I didn't want to get involved with this then sort of cut to six months. Later I was in New York rehearsing actually for the requiem, mass which has been found a copy of one of those sort of little street. Booksellers I think he was in Fifth Avenue and I it and, I I read it and I thought this is completely completely. Weird it's it's a muddled, bulky, Tom whether it's a detective story or a horror. Story, well history story kind of history, story but in the boot with something that never taken before was a high. Romance After having written you know cats, Evita in in the, superstar I I was really yearning to do a. High romance I hadn't done one before that was your that was your brilliant insight because. Everyone thinks of the fan of the opera is a horror, movie with Lonnie but you saw the romance in it and I think it's it's. The romantic quality of the musical that has touched people all over, the world of, course I mean I think the key thing. For me was in the, book, the there was a strange ending where the phantom's. Body, was exhumed for some reason an, only was the ring that Christine had gave him get given him on that Never appeared anywhere in any, of the movies all the the horror. Movie versions of it and I thought that gave the whole thing completely different dynamic and so in a. Way in. All show, that doesn't mean that with the end of the book about the ring motif right through the show and in the end of. Our show Christine, gives back the ring that he gave her the at the very end and so I it was the discovery of the book it was you know very. Very cheap fifty cents worth not not a bad investments we're on the air with Andrew, Lloyd Webber clearly the most successful a Broadway. Producer and composer of all time and since I really have. A chance to speak with someone of your, ilk I'd like to ask you with the beautiful songs from cats and Evita and phantom you've written. Just some of those haunting and beautiful, melodies and songs in the history of Rome I'm just wondering how it makes. You feel Never, seek the project, I I just like to. Get on with the next case and I'm. At the moment tactic, on closing in on the subject I I. Can't really say won't because it's not quite that I'm quite decided to do, it but I'm glad to hear you say that Andrew because when you and I, were speaking not too long ago you said you have so many beautiful tunes in your head. But you'd know story to put them in I got another problem if I if I do, the story I'm talking about absolutely none of the teams that, I got in my SEL to tune back I want to do but. I I like to I like to move forwards it's it's it's great Credibly grateful for the career I had. Done everything but I just really I just love working and sometimes, I made mistakes for that reason sometimes I've jumped in, on a project perhaps doesn't mean quite right and and but still, because I just love working now I think I've. Found something that you know as you get, older you kind of wanna make sure all the boxes and these, writing comes back to the really, really, critical thing about a great musical with the exception, of cats you gotta have a fantastic story? Andrew Whitworth Lennon I are, big fans of Richard Rodgers, and I believe is he. Your favorite. Broadway composer I think Richard Rogers is, peerless I mean he he is as a Melodist not only with, Lawrence hard of course but with Hammerstein I mean. He he was absolutely extraordinary and I think, you go very very long way to find anybody who really wrote, consistently such your favorite song Riedel, claims, it was a certain song I want to see, if you guys agree your favorite all-time Broadway song Well someone. Challenged evening I think is one of the best songs ever written and I go very long way According to Andrew. Lloyd Webber. Song Broadway saw my. Favorite song of yours Andrew. Is, another suitcase in another hall from the vita I love I love that. Song that's so beautiful that song Well thank you. It was Little old one in the show really because we never really meet the carrots that we don't meet, the mistress, ever a, game but, I it's a. It's a it's a lovely so many was kind of written truthfully. As a standalone. As well Andrew Lloyd Webber congratulations on the thirtieth anniversary of phantom and I can't thank you enough for coming on. Our radio show this morning. Thank you.

"Was a cat andrew lloydwebber joins us from our new york bureau welcome hello heart i really nice to have you and cats it does seem like a good place to start at one point it was the longest running show on broadway and it seems we have started with a cat by the name of previous posts was the family cat when i was a little boy he lived through into my teens and he was a lovely the old siamese cat but really old possum's book of practical cats the tsa elliott poems was the source of inspiration for cats my mom used to read them to me when the posed when i was a kid and they stay when they forever and one of the things when i was working with tim rice on the three big news because we did technicolor dreamcoat juice by soup started vita it was during a vita that i realized that on the whole i had written the melody's before tim had written the lyric at will that we did all the plots together we were taught where we wanted the songs and how we wanted them the lyric came off to the tune and i wanted to see if i could compose too existing verse so i started doing it almost as a as a bit of fun you know it home to see if i could set poems that were already written is it can crazy think asked maybe but why are cats so cool well of course what elliott brilliantly did with the cat burns was he gave all of the cats human characteristics so we recognize something in of the human in the cat that he's describing and we also know that cat shall we say michigan other naughty and you will you get cat cite the rump tom tugay unit when he's in in one of the aisle and all of that kind of think he had a brilliant disarmed up human traits and cap traits in the same poem that brilliantly witty but of course what made cats really work was the fact that he it when i thought seriously that i might do a concert peace which is where i thought cats might go i was given by valerie his widow some ideas that he had for a much bigger event and of course a poem about grizz available glamoc can't who was considered to be too sad for children's so that perm was cut from.
