Musical theatre is a global phenomenon, drawing millions of fans every year to sell-out shows in the West End, on Broadway, and in cities across the world. And for writer and composer Neil Brand, the best musicals can stand shoulder to shoulder with any other art form.
In a new three-part series, Neil explores how the musical evolved over the last 100 years. He'll hear the inside story from leading composers and talent, past and present; and throughout the series, Neil will collaborate with top performers to recreate classic songs, looking in detail at how they work musically and lyrically to captivate the audience.
These much-loved numbers include Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin' from Oklahoma!, Send In The Clowns from A Little Night Music, Don't Cry For Me Argentina from Evita, and Empty Chairs At Empty Tables from Les Misérables.
