Likes of US, The description

The basis of the musical The Likes of Us is the book of the same name by Leslie Thomas. The latter is dedicated to the history of a real person Thomas John Barnardo. He was a philanthropist, who found a shelter to many homeless children in England. More than 60.000 teenagers were literally rescued and trained life in difficult financial conditions of those times. Lyrics belong to Tim Rice, music was performed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Interestingly, the idea of a musical first appeared in 1965. It should be produced by the above-mentioned figures, but at that moment, the project has not received adequate funding.

The premiere of The Likes of Us took place in 1975 on Sydmonton Festival. The musical was quite warmly received by audiences & critics. The last noted the high realism of what was happening on stage. According to many artists, the creators managed to tell the quality story of Thomas John Barnardo. The musical has never lost its artistic value. There were several interpretations of this spectacular show, including the amateur version called Kidz R Us. But neither it nor many other performances were successful in the repeating of the achievements of the musical in 2005.
