The Show Must Go On
Available on Tubi TV
In the wake of the global pandemic, The Show Must Go On chronicles the race against time to save live theater and an army of theater-makers determined to win that race. In March of 2020 and for the first time in history, the performing arts were decimated worldwide when theater shut down indefinitely in every country except one: South Korea. From the frontlines in Seoul, this film follows two theatrical productions, the World Tour of The Phantom of The Opera and the South Korean Tour of Cats, that pushed ahead safely against all odds during the pandemic and helped show the way forward. And a continent away in the UK, the film simultaneously follows composer and empresario Andrew Lloyd Webber as he uses the example set by his Korean colleagues to envision a new future for theater on Broadway and the West End. The Show Must Go On chronicles the survival of the performing arts and the worldwide resuscitation of an artform with the fate of a global industry at stake. But more importantly, the film tells a human story, one of the resilience of storytellers and their determination to come together to heal, create, and inspire.
