March 27, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University presents "The Best of Broadway Featuring the Songs of Andrew Lloyd Webber" at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, following an unveiling and multimedia presentation of Miller's highly anticipated 2005-06 season.

An unforgettable musical journey through Andrew Lloyd Webber's greatest musical hits, "The Best Of Broadway" is a musical showcase of one of the most prolific and daring composers of our time. Beginning with a driving, exciting rendition of "Sunset Boulevard," the show travels on through the powerful rock musical "Jesus Christ Superstar," the thrilling strains of "Evita," the fun of "Cats" and the heart-pounding rhythms of "Starlight Express," followed by a Webber spoof a la Victor Borge, selections from "Song And Dance," "Aspects of Love" and the soaring passion of "Phantom of the Opera."

Andrew Lloyd Webber is the winner of six Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, three Grammy awards, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. At one time, he had five shows running in London and three on Broadway simultaneously. This evening of blockbuster hits will present some of the extraordinary work of this musical giant.
