Universal Studios saw much success with their YouTube initiative "The Shows Must Go On". Following Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies and Cats, the producing studio decided to extend the life of the channel and release more musicals every week, for the next two months. Each musical will be available for worldwide streaming for just 48-24 hours, depending on the specific rights in each country.
