The concert will be captured at the Vienna Concert Hall on 23 and 24 September 2022, where stars from the West End and Broadway will pay tribute to the EGOT-holding Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors and The Little Mermaid co-creator as he receives the Max Steiner Award at the Hollywood in Vienna ceremony.
