Andrew Lloyd Webber is known as the most prominent Broadway creatives of the late 20th century, responsible for hits like Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats and an adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera.
But movie versions of his musicals have been mixed, with the 2019 disaster that was Cats as a primary example – he had to get a dog for comfort upon that adaptation’s release.
“It was the first time in my 70-odd years on this planet that I went out and bought a dog. So the one good thing to come out of it is my little Havanese puppy.” Webber told Variety.
This news was later reported by CNN.
