Like many in the showbiz community, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is pretty keen to get the performing arts world up and running again.

So keen in fact, the legendary composer has volunteered for a coronavirus vaccine trial.

The 72-year-old shared a photo of himself on social media receiving an injection developed by the University of Oxford and pharmaceuticals company AstraZeneca.

“Just completed the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine trial,” he writes on Twitter.

“I’ll do anything to get theatres large and small open again and actors and musicians back to work.”

He’s been widely applauded online for his courage:

“Take my hat off to the Lord,” writes actor Jeremy Secomb.

All Broadway theatres have been closed since March due to the pandemic, leaving thousands of creatives out of work.
