Andrew Lloyd Webber Talks Transgender Performers, Theater Advocacy and ‘Starlight Express’

Variety by Gordon Cox on October 19, 2021

Andrew Lloyd Webber would welcome a transgender performer in the cast of one of his shows, the composer and producer said in an interview recorded live at the Variety Legit: Return to Broadway event presented by City National Bank.

“I’ve got nothing against a trans performer,” Lloyd Webber said in the talk, now available as part of the new episode of Variety’s theater podcast, “Stagecraft.” “The question is, are they the best person for the role? It really doesn’t matter what they are, what color they are, it really, really doesn’t matter. That’s always been my mantra.”
“When you’re ready, start living your truth. That’s when the magic happens.”
