Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 34 Year Run on Broadway Will End June 4th When “Bad Cinderella” Closes


Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has been represented on Broadway with some show since 1979.

But that will end June 4th when his flop musical, “Bad Cinderella,” closes. The musical played only to 54% capacity last week after receiving no Tony nominations. Reviews have been extremely negative. No one is going.

The end of Lloyd Webber’s run follows the recent closing of “Phantom of the Opera” after 35 years.

From “Jesus Christ Superstar” to “Phantom” to even a good show like “School of the Rock,” ALW has been a force to reckon with on Broadway. He may yet return with a new hit show. But for now, an era is over.
