B’way’s ‘Woman’ pushed back

Webber effort gets a late start

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest tuner, “The Woman in White,” has pushed back its Broadway opening from fall 2005 to spring 2006.

Producers of the musical, based on Wilkie Collins’ Victorian thriller, had previously announced a Broadway preem of Nov. 10. The change to spring makes possible a pre-Broadway tryout at Chicago’s LaSalle Bank Theater (formerly the Shubert Theater). The Windy City engagement will run Nov. 15-Jan. 8.

“Woman in White” will open in Gotham at a Nederlander house.

Tuner has music by Lloyd Webber, lyrics by David Zippel and a book by Charlotte Jones. Trevor Nunn directed the show’s world premiere at London’s Palace Theater, where it opened Sept. 15.

“Woman” is the second musical in recent weeks to opt for a later preem date in the 2005-06 Broadway season. Formerly titled “Like Jazz,” new tuner “In the Pocket” had originally set a fall debut. It now will open in the spring.

“In the Pocket” has music by the late Cy Coleman, lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman and book by Larry Gelbart.
