This month, we’re celebrating the greatest moments in musical history by taking a look back at some of the most powerful and emotional moments in the history of Broadway musicals.
The first Broadway musical in 20 years, “The Musical,” was created by Tony Award-winning composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
It premiered on Broadway in 1966 and was one of the first Broadway shows to explore the use of new technology and technology-enhanced storytelling.
The show’s title comes from a line from The Magic of Music by the composer’s daughter, Elizabeth Webber, which describes how the magic of music comes to us through the medium of voice.
The series premiered in 1964 and went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical.
In its final season, “the Musical” won three Academy Awards and became a cult classic, inspiring generations of children.
Here’s a look at some incredible moments from the show’s first year.
