BBC Radio 2 and BBC One are raising the curtain with a very special show direct from the West End, the US and beyond, featuring a spectacular cast of UK and international stars performing songs from some of the worlds best-loved musicals.
We are excited to reveal that four of Andrew’s shows will participate in the event: Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, The Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Sunset Boulevard.
Hosted on radio and television by multi-award winning performer Sheridan Smith, the event puts the songs, the shows, and the stars, back on stage at the world-famous London Palladium. It will be broadcast from 7pm – 9pm on Sunday 31 January on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds, and as a 75-minute show in February on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. It will be available on BBC iPlayer for a year after broadcast.
The performance highlights – some exclusively for the Radio 2 broadcast – include (note, plans are subject to change at short notice):
