Phantom Drama Continues!

| Filed under: Broadway Babies

During the opening night party for Love Never Dies, it's rumored that Andrew Lloyd Webber was going to ask Hal Prince to help revamp the show before it heads to New York - and he was denied!

"Most producers say, 'No! You can't do that — it costs too much,'" claims a source. "Andrew says, 'Let's hire more acrobats!'"

But Prince is taking the time out to concentrate on fixing his own show Paradise Found. And Lloyd Webber is in a difficult position because director Jack O'Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell have had enough of the project.

"Jack and Jerry are sick of it," adds the source. "They've been going back and forth to London working on it, but nothing seems to please Andrew. They're fed up. The problem is the book, and they didn't write the book."

The two are working on their next show Catch Me If You Can, which is heading to Broadway in the spring. It may even end up at the Neil Simon Theatre, which was being held for Love Never Dies before its postponement.

It's rumored that Lloyd Webber is looking to Rob Marshall as the director to retool the show.

Yikes! Seems like it needs a lot of work!

    Give it up. It all sounds too desperate. I've heard the music, too, and it's not just the book that's in trouble.

    I saw it in London with the original cast and I was pleasantly surprised. The character development from the first Phantom was a little off and the plot wasn't the greatest, but it was nonetheless a great Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. Phantom was still better. :-)
