Who's the "U" in Rent's "Today 4 U"? What if it's Andrew Lloyd Webber?

From today's Broadway Maven Weekly Blast:

LAST BLAST: The “U” in the number “Today 4 U” from Rent is, wait for it, Andrew Lloyd Webber. The song is about how a dog named “Evita” plunges to her death (from a
balcony, get it?) after percussion music by Rent character Angel (the show’s heroine who dies young). Perhaps with “tomorrow for me” Jonathan Larson was declaring that the torch of Lloyd Webber mega-musicals had been passed — or should have been passed — to HIS generation of composers and their very different kind of Broadway show.
