Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda and Andrew Lloyd Webber have a living room piano play-off
The pair are housebound – but found new ways to raise money for charity
They might both be couped up inside following advice on both sides of the Atlantic, but that hasn't stopped Lin-Manuel Miranda and Andrew Lloyd Webber from having a piano-based back-and-forth from their respective nations.
It all started after Lloyd Webber posted a video of himself performing 'All I Ask Of You", which Miranda re-shared. After this Lloyd Webber challenged Miranda to reply with another tune, so Miranda presented "Everything's Alright" from Jesus Christ Superstar. Miranda has since challenged Lloyd Webber to perform a number from Hamilton.
And now Lloyd Webber has replied with "You'll Be Back" – let's see where it heads next!
I didn't think I'd ever get such a response to this little tryout! Here I am in my own self-isolation. The song that came out on top was ‘All I Ask Of You' - ALW pic.twitter.com/NCSujNwBPd— Andrew Lloyd Webber (@OfficialALW) March 19, 2020
