Lloyd Webber’s cancer won’t stop ‘Love’

Condition has been caught in its early stages

Andrew Lloyd Webber has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is currently undergoing treatment, his reps announced Sunday.

Condition has been caught in its early stages, according to the statement, and the uber-successful composer-producer expects to return to work before the end of the year.

Diagnosis, made late last week, comes just as plans for Lloyd Webber’s sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Love Never Dies,” ramp up. No change is currently expected to the production timeline announced earlier this month, with the new production bowing March 9 at the Adelphi Theater in London before moving on to a Broadway bow Nov. 11, 2010.

“Love Never Dies” reps a hotly anticipated property in the legit industry, a production seen to have the same potential for international success as Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom,” currently the longest-running show on Broadway. Total worldwide gross is estimated at $5 billion.

In London, plans also are afoot for a new stage version of “The Wizard of Oz,” produced by Lloyd Webber.

The composer’s legit output also includes “Cats,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita,” among others. He also has found success as a legit producer and a judge and producer on legit-casting reality TV, including “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?” His company Really Useful Group owns and operates six West End theaters.
