While this is all free to watch, it is encouraged that people make a donation to a number of charities that will be listed on each video, including Acting for Others, Broadway Cares and Actors Benevolent Fund.

Lloyd Webber has been keeping in touch with fans on Twitter through isolation, taking requests for songs to play on the piano. Yesterday, the Phantom of the Opera West End orchestra released a video of them playing All I Ask of You with the composer.
