About Barry Jesus Christ Superstar Merchandise Bio/Credits FAQ's Guest Book Barbra Streisand News Links

By special arrangement with Oscar®-winning lyricist Sir Tim Rice, we are delighted to offer brand new paperback copies of his autobiography Oh What A Circus.
This delightfully frank and humorous book details his life through early 1984 and includes invaluable insights into the lyricist's craft and his highly successful creative relationship with Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Find out how the idea for Jesus Christ Superstar evolved, how the major songs took shape, and even discover some alternative lyrics for well-known melodies (how many people know that the "Superstar" anthem was originally written for another project, with very different words?).

Then of course, came Evita!

Few people outside Argentina had ever heard of the legendary Eva Peron before her story was dramatically brought to life by Sir Tim's unforgettable lyrics.
Oh What A Circus (the book title is taken from the famous opening song) contains fascinating insights into the development of what was to be the last Andrew Lloyd-Webber / Tim Rice collaboration; including the original "Evita" actress who turned down the coveted leading role.

The book provides a fascinating glimpse of the British music industry of the 1960's through the early 1980's (yes, including at least one Beatles encounter) from the perspective of a insider who would emerge as one of musical theater's most successful lyricists.

Oh What A Circus contains many original photos, including a very young Barry Dennen and Yvonne Elliman.

By special arrangement with Sir Tim Rice, we are authorized to offer a limited number of personally signed copies of Oh What A Circus, complete with a certificate of authenticity.

All prices include shipping within the USA and Canada. There is an additional charge of $15 per order for shipments outside the USA. Please be aware that we cannot ship to certain countries. However, as with all orders, your credit card will not be charged until AFTER the merchandise is sent.
