When director Scott Ellis and his collaborators set out to create a concert of songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, they pored over a list of every song he'd written. "We called it the bible," Ellis says in a recent interview, adding that, like Joseph's coat of many colors, this "Book of Andrew" seemed to have songs to fit every emotion.

As a single gay man in his 50s, Scott Ellis knew that having a baby would be a challenge. But after 20 years establishing himself as a respected director in the New York City theater scene, he decided he was ready to take the plunge. He was financially sound. He didn't have a romantic partner, but there was a solid support network around him. So Ellis found a surrogate, met with her doctor and began preparing himself emotionally for the arrival of his first son or daughter. There was only one caveat: He didn't want twins.

At 6:40 a.m. on an overcast Tuesday, director Scott Ellis boards an L.A.-bound flight, settling into a window seat toward the back of the business-class cabin. Wearing a blue baseball cap and a white sport shirt with sleeves that barely fit over assiduously maintained biceps, he pulls out a book and papers from his carry-on and stashes them in the seat pocket. Working on only three hours of sleep and en route to rehearsals in L.A., the director might well use the flight to rest.
