Musical legend is ready for jail to play ‘Cinderella’ on time


The world-famous musical creator Andrew Lloyd Webber is ready to defy coronary restrictions and, if necessary, go to jail to open his theaters to full houses on June 21 and not least his performance ‘Cinderella’ (‘Cinderella’, ed.) On June 25.

“We are going to open up no matter what happens,” he says The Telegraph.

Andrew Lloyd Webber, who is behind musical hits such as ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘Evita’ and ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, says he may be forced to sell his six West End properties if he does not open for full scale.

He says at the same time that giant productions like ‘Cinderella’ are impossible to carry out under the current restrictions in the UK.

The British government has previously said it would ease the restrictions on June 21, but according to BBC the easing will possibly be delayed for fear of new mutations of coronavirus.

The English theaters have so far only been allowed to open to a smaller audience, which is why many theaters remain closed because it cannot run around financially with so few audiences.

The 73-year-old Andrew Lloyd Webber believes that there is scientific evidence that it is completely safe to lock the audience in if you follow the necessary precautions such as coronapas. It has shown several British trials where people have been admitted without bandages and distance requirements, he says.

The UK government has not yet published the results of the trials conducted with a wider audience.

“If the government ignores their own science, we can bring a case against it in principle,” Webber told The Telegraph, adding that if the government closes ‘Cinderella’, there are only two options: a lawsuit or a hefty compensation.
