The album features the original cast recording of the musical, with contributions from stars of the stage and screen, including Alexander Hanson (Jesus Christ Superstar, We will rock you) and Charlotte Spencer (Mary Poppins, Les Miserables). Based on the real life events behind the 1963 Profumo Affair, the scandal that shocked society. Stephen Ward charts the rise and fall from grace of the society osteopath. Friend to film stars, spies, models, government ministers and aristocrats, his rise and ultimate disgrace coincided with the increasingly permissive lifestyle of London's elite in the early 1960's. The musical centres on Ward's involvement with the young and beautiful Christine Keeler and their chance meeting in a West End night club which led to one of the biggest political scandals and trials of the 20th century. Stephen Ward is Andrew Lloyd Webber's first sole orchestration since his original draft of Cats in 1981. Now open in the West End, The show also features book and lyrics by playwright Christopher Hampton and lyricist Don Black.
