The free musical is available on Webber's The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel. Webber launched the channel to offer theater fans around the world a chance to continue watching some of their favourite hit musicals at home.
"Universal have come up with the idea of a whole series now called The Shows Must Go On, which is about musicals going from stage to screen and they're going to show one of mine every Friday for the next few weeks," Webber said in his official video announcement of the series.
