Webber gets real

Legendary songman moves into reality TV

Andrew Lloyd Webber is looking to find his next star on reality TV.

That’s the buzz in London, anyway, where published reports say the composer-producer-landlord will participate in an “American Idol”-style contest to be televised on the BBC, with the aim of discovering an unknown to play Maria in his upcoming revival of “The Sound of Music.”

A rep for Lloyd Webber would say only, “I can confirm that Andrew is in the early stages of development talks with the BBC for an exciting new project next year.”
