Productions have played in 319 cities across forty-two countries, it has won more than a hundred major theatre awards, including an Olivier, Tony, and Grammy, and it has seen by an estimated seventy million people in audiences worldwide.

This is the exclusive companion book to the world’s best-loved musical.
