James Corden Takes On 'Cats' And 'Phantom Of The Opera' In A London Crosswalk Musical

The perfect tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber.

This week, James Corden brought The Late Late Show to London, and he kicked things off by debuting another one of his infamous crosswalk musicals in the city. This time, to keep the British theme going, Corden chose to perform songs from several Andrew Lloyd Webber classics.

The composer himself was there to witness it all, as Corden and his talented group of performers recreated numbers from Evita, Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Obviously, Corden had the leading role in every production, and the dramatic costumes to match.


One Webber musical that didn't get the crosswalk treatment is School of Rock. That's because Webber actually brought the young cast of the show to perform for Corden's company. It's too bad the host shooed them away for having "attitude problems."

Things seemed to be going well — aside from the frantic rush at light changes — until Corden realized he had no one to play Christine opposite his Phantom of the Opera. So he called in a favor from Josh Gad, who was happy to help. After all, he gave a great performance in Corden's Beauty and the Beast production last year.
