IRCPA Presents MOVING ARTISTS FORWARD With Managers Kathy Domoney And Andrew Kwan

Artists managers help artists to define their goals and to achieve them. They take the roles of sounding board, confidant, protector and devil’s advocate – sometimes leading, sometimes following, and at times just getting out of the way. In the time of the Pandemic, what to do?

Andrew Lloyd Webber is trying to bring glass slippers back.

The legendary composer is tackling the fairy tale of Cinderella for his next project, his first original musical since 2015’s School of Rock. On Friday, he dropped the debut single from the upcoming cast album for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella: The Musical.

“Bad Cinderella” shows a decidedly different Ella from the meeker woman in some versions, decrying the people who deride her, call her Cinderella, and lead shallow lives. “Call me bad Cinderella, I take pride when you sneer, I am proud that I’m not like you,” Cinderella, played by Carrie Hope Fletcher, proclaims in the lyrics. “Ironclad Cinderella, I face life with no fear, and a more-than-sky-high IQ.”

Cinderella was originally intended to debut this month, but its West End opening has been postponed to spring 2021. In its stead,

The legendary musical theatre composer took to TikTok to respond to an old tweet, which read “still fuming that The Black Parade hasn’t been made into some incredible goth musical”, in reference to the emo pop titan’s acclaimed 2006 LP.

And the 72-year-old impresario paid Gerard Way and co a massive compliment by praising them for making the one G-note on the album’s title track “iconic”.

Webber – whose next production of ‘Cinderella’ will hit London’s West End next Spring – played the first note of the soundtrack to his own show ‘Phantom of the Opera’ first of all, and said: “Musical theatre fans everywhere, what do you think of when you hear this?”

And after playing the MCR key, he wrote on Twitter: “It’s one thing to create an iconic set of

Nearly One Year Later, We’re Still Figuring Out the Basics of the Prince Andrew Scandal

Things have really changed in the 11 months since Prince Andrew gave a disastrous interview to the BBC’s Emily Maitlis about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein. The prince stepped back from public life and royal duties, the entire world was plunged into strange new conditions by a viral pandemic, and Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested and charged with six federal counts, including enticement of minors, sex trafficking, and perjury. (She has denied all the allegations and pleaded not guilty to the charges in July.) Despite all that, the public’s knowledge of the situations Andrew discussed—namely Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s allegations of sexual abuse, which Andrew has denied on multiple occasions—hasn’t progressed too much over that time, despite interventions by a U.S. attorney earlier this year. 

On Thursday, a redacted version of a 2016 deposition Maxwell gave to Giuffre’s lawyers was made public after a protracted legal fight. Though Andrew’s name was
