How to live stream By Jeeves online
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Universal have started to stream some of his musicals online.
They are so easy to find as they are on YouTube, on the The Shows Must Go On! YouTube channel.
In a video uploaded to the channel to welcome fans, Lloyd Webber introduced the channel to fans.
He said: “Hi everybody, I’m Andrew Lloyd Webber and I’m here to tell you that Universal has come with up with the idea of a whole series called The Show Must Go On! which is about musicals going from stage to screen.”
So far, he has shown some of his most iconic works thus far in his career.
The first to be released was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, before Jesus Christ Superstar came to the platform.
The version of Joseph shown was the 2000 adaptation, inspired by the West End production, starring Donny Osmond, Maria Friedman, Richard Attenborough and Joan Collins.
Following this came Jesus Christ Superstar, the 2012 arena production starring Tim Minchin, Melanie C and Chris Moyles.
That show came out on Good Friday, which meant it was the perfect musical for the long weekend.

After this came The Phantom of the Opera, an iconic musical loved by fans everywhere.
This version was the 25th-anniversary performance in the Royal Albert Hall, starring Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine.
Despite these two being the originators of their roles in Love Never Dies, they did not feature in the version coming to the channel, which was instead the 2012 production of the show starring Ben Lewis and Anna O’Byrne.
After that, the channel broadcast a medley of some of Lloyd Webber’s favourite hits, in the Andrew Lloyd Webber Royal Albert Hall Celebration which saw huge stars such as Sarah Brightman and Michael Ball take to the stage.
By Jeeves, originally called Jeeves, is an adaptation of the P.G. Wodehouse books featuring iconic characters Jeeves and Wooster.
The original show, which opened in 1975, closed after one month, before it was reworked by Lloyd Webber and Ayckbourn.
By Jeeves reopened in 1996 for a 12-week run before it was extended into 1997, and was nominated for three Olivier Awards for the revival.
This version sees Bertie Wooster played by John Scherer and Jeeves played by Martin Jarvis.
By Jeeves will launch at 7pm on Friday, May 8 for 48 hours on The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel
