It was then that we wondered, "If there was a similar award given in the name of Andrew Lloyd Webber, who would be so honored?"
Here are a few that we came up with (and some of their ALW credits):
- Lyricist Tim Rice - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita
- Actor Michael Crawford - The Phantom of the Opera, The Woman in White, The Wizard of Oz
- Actress Sarah Brightman - Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Requiem
- Actress Elaine Paige - Cats, Evita, Sunset Boulevard
- Actress Betty Buckley - Cats, Song and Dance, Sunset Boulevard
- Lyricist Charles Hart - The Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love
- Lyricist Don Black - Tell Me on a Sunday, Starlight Express, Aspects of Love, Sunset Boulevard
- Choreographer Gillian Lynne - Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love
- Producer Cameron Mackintosh - Song and Dance, Cats, The Phantom of the Opera
- Director Harold Prince - Evita, The Phantom of the Opera, Whistle Down the Wind
Which brings us back to Patti LuPone. Do you think she'd even be considered? On the plus side, Evita. On the downside, Sunset Boulevard...
