Fans of musicals everywhere can finally rejoice, because Andrew Lloyd Webber is heading to a gaming system nearest you.

According to gaming website MCV, the famous composer is the star of a new video game titled "Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals: Sing and Dance," which was released exclusively for Wii today. The game features 32 hits from Webber's popular musicals, including popular ballads like "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" and "All I Ask Of You."

A description of the video game posted on Broadway World states: "Fans of hit musicals such as 'The Phantom of the Opera', ‘Sunset Boulevard’, 'Evita', 'Cats', 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' and 'Jesus Christ Superstar' will now be able to put themselves center stage with this new game."

Players can pick between "Dance," "Sing, or "Career" modes (we have no idea what that last one means), incorporating jazz hands and high-pitched solos. Plus, they can choose to belt out their songs next to Mii versions of ALW greats like Elaine Paige, Michael Crawford, and Donny Osmond.

Think Rock Band for the gentler music lovers out there. That's right, no more lonely shower singing, now you can bring your best impression of Munkustrap to, erm, your living room. That's a step up right?

"This is a fabulous signing for us," said Paul Nicholls, sales and marketing director at Koch, in a statement to MCV. "Andrew Lloyd Webber and his creations are a British institution that have been enjoyed by generations across the world. The chance to bring this product to market for the Nintendo Wii is both an honor and hugely exciting."

"Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals: Sing and Dance" was published by Tubby Games and is available for Wii starting September 14th through Koch Media.
