"Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals: Sing & Dance," the upcoming video game allowing fans of the Tony Award-winning composer to sing and dance through Webber's classic tunes, will be released Sept. 14 for Nintendo Wii, according to published reports.
Published by Tubby Games and distributed by Koch Media, the video game includes 32 of Webber's songs from 13 of his musicals, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "The Phantom of the Opera," "Memory" and "Any Dream Will Do," among others.
Here's how the video game is described: "Fans of hit musicals such as The Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard, Evita, Cats, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Jesus Christ Superstar will now be able to put themselves center stage with this new game." Players can choose from three different game modes: Dance, Sing or Career.
"Sing & Dance" will also feature the voices of Broadway performers Elaine Paige (Sunset Boulevard, Cats), Michael Crawford (The Phantom of the Opera), Donny Osmond (Joseph…) and Sarah Brightman (The Phantom of the Opera), who "sing" alongside the gamer.
Lloyd Webber won Original Score Tony Awards for his work on Evita, Cats and Sunset Boulevard. He is currently represented on Broadway with the Tony Award-nominated revival of Evita as well as the long-running Phantom of the Opera.
