Andrew Lloyd Webber's go-to director The Stage Show

    • Performing Arts

British director Laurence Connor has a knack for knowing what audiences want. He has directed or revived some of the most successful musicals ever produced, including a hit new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's first musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Also, the Australian comic opera Love Burns by Graeme Koehne and Louis Nowra is revived by the State Opera of South Australia, and we meet Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Johnston, writer of First Casualty at Queensland Theatre, to find out what compelled the veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan to bring the brutality and complexity of war to the stage.
