Get Onto My Cloud has Tim at his chatty witty best, where he talks about his career in theatre and music, his colleagues and friends (plus the odd foe) and sometimes roams off stage to discuss other important matters in his life such as cricket, astronomy, Sunderland FC and boxer dogs. You can also expect to listen to recordings of some of his favourite lyrics (not always the obvious ones) and he reveals how and why some shows worked brilliantly and some didn’t.
Described as “Relaxed, casual, essential listening for musical theatre fans and historians.”
Sir Tim Rice wrote the lyrics for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Chess and The Lion King, to name but five. The composers he has worked with include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Elton John, Alan Menken, ABBA’s Bjorn and Benny and Freddie Mercury.

Show suggestion

Tim I am a huge fan of your work and I love the podcast. I have a suggestion for a future show topic on something i would love to hear your opinion on. I’d love to hear your critique of the lyric writing skills of some of the great musical theater lyricists in the pantheon: Hammerstein, Lerner, Ebb, Porter, Berlin, Sondheim, etc. You could stick to dead lyricists so as to avoid hurting the feelings of any living writer. Hope you see this message! Love the show, please keep making it! Andy in Kentucky, USA

So thoughtfully written!

Sir Tim,
It’s a delight to discover your show from a JCS playbill recently. And I thank you for your thoughtful and expert writing of the episodes. You have honored your listeners, and it is a real treat to recognize even in your scripting of these episodes what a fine fine wordsmith you truly are. Thank you for this gift to us!

Meryl T. ,

Thank you, Sir Tim!

I write musicals because of you and Andrew. I am grateful to hear your stories and beautiful writing.
