Alexander Hanson, who has previously appeared in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard and more recently Jesus Christ Superstar, has reunited with the composer to play the title role in Stephen Ward, which premieres tonight
Since Jesus Christ Superstar opened at the West End's Palace Theatre over 40 years ago, not a week has gone by when there hasn't been at least one Andrew Lloyd Webber production running in London. His 16th new musical, Stephen Ward, about the scapegoat at the centre of the 1963 Profumo Affair, premieres this week.

Alexander Hanson will play the title role in Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical Stephen Ward when it opens at the Aldwych Theatre this December, joined by actors including Anthony Calf and Joanna Riding
