Here's what Nick had to say about it:

Legendary musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has adapted The Wizard of Oz for a production at London's Palladium.
Andrew could have the dog playing Toto in his show waring just any common man's collar. SO he teamed up with Online retailer UrbanPup.com to make dog collars just for his show!
They made this Emerald Green crystal collar and lead set for Razzle, Dazzle and Topper, the three West Highland terriers that play Toto.
And they turned out looking hot as hell! Is there anything Andy can't do??
The Swarovoski crystal collar made of sterling silver and encrusted with citrine and clear crystals is available for $53.84 on UrbanPup.com.

Everything is getting a revival these days, huh???
There's a lot of buzz coming out of Toronto recently and it has nothing to do with the royal couple being in Canada. No, the city is buzzing about a much higher power, one that Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice gave a voice in their smash hit musical, Jesus Christ Superstar.
A production of the show is

The sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera will close on August 27.
Love Never Dies opened in London's West End in March 2010 to some pretty poor reviews from critics. The show was then relaunched after some rewrites and a few tweaks, and was even nominated for seven Laurence Olivier theater awards, but unfortunately, it just never caught any momentum and bombed at the box office.
While the Melbourne, Australia version received a much more positive reaction, Lloyd Webber says that he blamed his battle with prostate cancer on why the show flopped in London.
Unable to give the show his full attention, he said, "With hindsight we should have said, 'Let's put the whole thing on hold until I'm 100 percent again'. Frankly I wasn't feeling very well."
It's unfortunate to see another stage show close, but sources do say there is a possibility that the Melbourne version may be brought back to London.
Let's hope so. The show deserves another chance.

This…this is pretty spectacular.
Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has done such much for the arts, creatively and otherwise, but as of this week, he's taken his involvement a step further with a generous donation to art inspired charities.
The famed composer auctioned off one of his Pablo Picasso paintings last year to raise funds for the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. The money from that sale went directly to organizations that offer special services in art and culture, such as the youth theatre company Chickenshed and the music charity Nordoff Robbins, which specializes in music therapy.
So, how much money did these fine charities make from the sale. Drum roll please….
Wowza! Incredible! Such a generous thing to do!
Got anymore Picasso paintings lying around? A few more sales like that and we might save art programs across the whole country!!!

Hold up! Since when are you thinking about making Sunset Boulevard into a new movie-musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber! That's the most FABOOSH news we've heard all day!
Apparently, Andrew has been trying to get the project up and running, but his first step is to find the best Norma Desmond for the film version. He's top pick? MADONNA!
Can you just IMAGINE?! If we close our eyes and dream real hard, we can actually hear her sing a few bars of As If We Never Said Goodbye!!!
However, there is a small problem - Madge isn't taking his calls!!! According to reports, Andrew has tried and tried, but Madonna supposedly isn't interested!
But, but, but…WHY?!
Oh please! Just hear the man out! Just think - the last time you did a musical, you won a Golden Globe! Maybe that award deserves a friend!!!!
Think about it!
P.S. - Piers Morgan said on this show this week that he tried to reach out to her in an effort to hear Andrew out. See! Even HE wants her to do it!!!

Back in January, we were very impressed to hear that the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera had a killer week where it grossed $1,390,530.53, which was its highest weekly gross in 23 years!
Now, theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh will breathe new life into the show
not that it needs it and he'll be putting together a worldwide Phantom tour in 2012.
The new version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's play will be helmed by Laurence Connor, and it will feature "new sets and costumes by Paul Brown and lighting by three-time Olivier Award winner Paule Constable."
Should be inneresting to see how this version differs from the Broadway musical.
Will U check out the new Phantom tour next year when it plays near you?
