A brand new YouTube channel titled The Shows Must Got On is set to be launched offering full theatre performances from some of the best productions online for free in this difficult time.

On offer are some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much-loved musicals, launching with one of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The 2000 adaptation, inspired by the West End production, stars Donny Osmond, Maria Friedman, Richard Attenborough, and Joan Collins. The fan-favourite includes mega-hits Close Every Door to Me, Go Go Go Joseph and Any Dream Will Do.

Each show will be available weekly (from 7pm BST) for a limited 48-hour period online – no charge or sign up required.

The second production to be made available will be Jesus Christ Superstar (2012) on Good Friday, 10 April, the arena production starring Tim Minchin, Melanie C, and Chris Moyles, with further shows to be announced.
