'Phantom of the Opera' sequel Broadway debut delayed due to Andrew Lloyd Webber's health

Posted on

Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sequel to Phantom of the Opera, will come to Broadway later than anticipated, as Webber struggles with complications from prostrate cancer surgery. The show, which was supposed to premiere in November, has been delayed until spring of 2011. “Although the cancer has been eradicated, there have been post-operative problems,” Love‘s organizers said in a statement about Webber. “These have been aggravated by recent air travel and Lloyd Webber’s doctors have requested that he does not take any further long-haul flights for the time being and until the problem has been investigated.”
