alw talks katdashian lawsuit

Famed Broadway composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has NO time for Katdashians! Break The Musical!

As you may recall, the team over at Theater80 decided to pay tribute to the KUWTK family AND the famed musical Cats by combining the two topics together for an off-Broadway parody production. LOLz!

Video: Watch Barbra & Jamie Belt A Tune!

However, as we previously reported, ALW was not in on the joke as he threatened the production company with a lawsuit if they didn't cut six of his original songs from the unauthorized musical. Well this action certainly made Mr. Lloyd Webber look like the bad cop as he's since received some backlash for it.

So it's no surprise that Andrew's since clarified his stance on the drama. In a convo with The Post, the Broadway hitmaker explained that he

Looks like Hamilton isn't the only show drawing a crowd on Broadway!

While no one in New York City really likes Donald Trump… one protester went out of his way on Thursday to show just how much he hates the racist Republican.

In fact, model Krit McClean was filled with so much rage when he went off about the presumptive GOP candidate in front of cops and tourists alike, he couldn't be bothered to wear anything at all!

That's right — the 21-year-old hottie climbed to the top of the TKTS stairs in the middle of Times Square this morning where he proceeded to make a scene asking "Where are you, Donald Trump?"

It took NYPD cops about an hour to talk the naked man down… but once he decided to jump off the platform, he completely missed the airbag they had inflated below him!

Luckily, Krit survived the 1-story fall and was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue for evaluation, where we're hoping he can get the mental health he needs.

Ch-ch-check out a bit of Krit in his birthday suit (below)!!!
