Andrew Lloyd Webber Net Worth: Andrew Lloyd Webber is a British composer and impresario of theatre who has a net worth of $1.2 billion. Andrew Lloyd Webber was born March 22, 1948 in Kensington, England. His father was the director of the London College of Music, his mother was a piano teacher and his younger brother, Julian, is a renowned cellist. A true prodigy, early in life Lloyd Webber played the piano, the violin (at age 3) and the French horn, and began writing his own music (at age 6). At 17 years old, Lloyd Webber received a letter from 21-year-old law student Tim Rice. It read, in full: "Dearest Andrew, I've been told you're looking for a 'with it' writer of lyrics for your songs, and as I've been writing pop songs for a while and particularly enjoy writing the lyrics, I wonder if you consider it worth your while meeting me. In 1965, Lloyd Webber and Rice began working on their first musical, The Likes of Us, which didn't reach the stage at the time. They were soon commissioned to write a religious concert, and over the next two months the pair crafted a 20-minute "pop-cantata" version of what would one day become Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, a retelling of the biblical story of Joseph. The play debuted on March 1, 1968 and was an instant success. The pair's next project was Jesus Christ Superstar (1971), presenting pop music in classical operatic form. The '80s saw the end of the Rice-Lloyd Webber collaboration, but it also marked Lloyd Webber's blockbuster era. First up was Cats, based on the poetry of T.S. Eliot. Lloyd Webber's next hit, and his biggest to date, was The Phantom of the Opera, based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux. Phantom debuted in London in 1986 and has gone on to be the longest-running Broadway show in history. It celebrated its 10,000th performance on Broadway on February 11, 2012. Collecting a variety of honors along the way, Lloyd Webber has been 'knighted', won seven Tony Awards, three Grammy Awards, an Academy Award and the Kennedy Center Honors Award. Andrew Lloyd Webber has created some of the most recognizable Broadway music of all time.
