They may be timeless, but his musicals still make me want to stomp a cat to death.

They are "strangely timeless".

Phantom has been running since 1986. It still plays at over 100%.

Joseph, Cats, Superstar, Evita and others have had thousands of individual productions over the last 40 or so years.

Make fun of him all you want but he has set a record that will be impossible to break.

I would give my right arm to have a single show run more than 2 years.

Try not to get worried. Try not to turn on to problems that upset you.

He looks like David Gest. *shudder*

"I have no idea why people think he's even decent to look at. For goodness sake, just get one or two successful plays under your belt and people just look right past the wrinkles and those sagging jowls!"

Has anyone checked that he's actually still alive?

He looks like a thirty-something who's had surgery to look older.

If by timeless you mean "regurgitations of Jesus Christ Superstar and Cats", then yeah.

My total hatred and contempt for him is profound and unwavering.

Weber's music is so utterly hackneyed and pretentious to an astounding degree it can not be surpassed. He REALLY does make me sick.

Literally.

His corn ball garbage ACTUALLY gives me the urge to vomit.

Next to Andrew Lloyd Weber,
Kenny G is a mountain of integrity.

I read that as "tuneless" rather than "timeless."

But I really do love Jesus Christ Superstar. The "Brown Album" is a secret shame among many of my rock musician friends.

I have... because he's my sworn enemy.

If I'm ever elected president my last act in office will be to send Delta Force to find him and strangle him to death while I watch on a live video feed in the Oval Office while the missus pleasures me with her mouth.

Like his musicals, an inorganic clone.

I have a love hate relationship with the guy...I love Jesus Christ Superstar and Joseph. I hated Cats with a fiery passion.

His Requiem is really messed up, too...Very disturbing Requiem...

Is this the monthly thread where the snobs who are so enlightened and educated in the arts that they can proclaim Andrew Lloyd Webber as the worst thing to ever happen to music/theater/the world etc. come?

*reads thread*

Ahh yes. Carry on.

Yep. It's also the thread where the unenlightened and uneducated proclaim him the best thing since the rest of the sliced wonderbread in their CD collections.

What then to do about Andrew Lloyd Weber?

I must admit... I really do not like Cats and Jesus Christ Superstar.

However, I absolutely adore Phantom of the Opera. I'm totally in love with the music. I'm going to the U.S. tour at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in a few weeks and am very excited.
