The Likes of Us

Tudor Musical Comedy Society is proud to be presenting the West Midlands County Premiere of this newly-released musical. Set in mid-Victorian London, the show tells the story of Dr Thomas Barnado, an evangelical, entrepreneurial and philanthropic man, who crusade to rescue the orphans of London became world-renowned with the founding of the children’s homes bearing his name.

“The Likes of Us” was the first musical collaboration between Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber originally written in 1965, and although not performed at that time it has never been forgotten. The show is a gem of a musical and includes a host of tuneful, witty and touching songs and soaring melodies, which reveal the talent and the promise of Rice and Lloyd Webber who together then went on to create the global hits “Joseph”, “Evita” and “Jesus Christ Superstar”.
