Tony-winning composer Andrew Lloyd Webber will discuss his forthcoming autobiography, Unmasked, March 5, 2018, at an event at New York's The Town Hall.
Glenn Close, who won one of her three Tonys for her performance in the original Broadway production of Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard, will host the conversation with the English-born composer. Close also earned critical acclaim for reprising the role of Norma Desmond in the recent Broadway revival.
Lloyd Webber's autobiography will be released by HarperCollins March 6, coinciding with his 70th birthday.
“I have long resisted writing an autobiography. Autobiographies are by definition self-serving and mine is no exception,” Lloyd Webber said in an earlier statement. “It is the result of my nearest and dearest, moaning at me ‘to tell your story your way.’ I meekly agreed, primarily to shut them up. Consequently this tome is not my fault. I intended to write my memoirs in one volume and I have failed spectacularly. Quite how I have been able to be so verbose about the most boring person I have ever written about eludes me.”
Lloyd Webber is currently represented on Broadway with The Phantom of the Opera, School of Rock, and Cats.
