Andrew Lloyd Webber is writing a new musical based on the Profumo Affair, the scandal that rocked the world of British politics in 1963. According to the New York Post, the Phantom composer has reuinted with one of his Sunset Boulevard collaborators, lyricist Don Black, for the project. He is considering enlisting his other collaborator on that show, Christopher Hampton, to write the new musical's book.

The Phantom of the Opera Tickets
What's it all about?
Tingle factor. It's what made The Phantom of the Opera one of the biggest box-office hits of all time, and it's why rapturous audiences keep on coming back for more.
Snatch up your tickets for Andrew Lloyd-Webber's multi award-winning musical and prepare to be captivated by one of the greatest love stories of all time.
You'll be swept away by the swooping, romantic score, the sumptuous period costumes and the gothic splendour of the candlelit sets.
After 25 years The Phantom of the Opera has lost none of its power to move. In fact it’s so good it’s had a sequel, Love Never Dies – a first for the West End.
What's the story?
Beneath the Paris Opera House lives a mysterious masked figure. Hidden from mortal eyes and feared as an avenging ghost, men quake at the mention of The Phantom of the Opera.
When beautiful young soprano Christine catches his eye, the Phantom is drawn out of the darkness toward her. But when he discovers he has a rival for her love, the Phantom swears a terrible revenge.
Can love conquer even the heart of a monster?
Who's in it?
You'll be amazed how much of the music from The Phantom of the Opera you already know. Not just the title song, but signature theme 'Music of the Night' and the gorgeous romantic melody 'All I Ask Of You'.
Perhaps their familiarity isn’t so surprising - The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack is the best-selling cast album of all time.
And with Marcus Lovett playing the lead, there's never been a better time for you to hear these soaring songs.
Who is The Phantom of the Opera suitable for?
You don't have to be one half of a couple to enjoy The Phantom of the Opera. Given that it's one of the all-time 'date' shows though, it can't hurt.
Aside from its glorious romance, one of the great things about Phantom is how scary it gets. For this reason, you might want to think twice before buying tickets for your youngsters.
That said, steelier kids who laugh in the face of fear will be mesmerised by The Phantom of the Opera as he prowls his murky subterranean haunts. Not to mention the unforgettable 'chandelier moment'.
Opera buffs too will love Lloyd-Webber's cheeky musical references to everyone from Mozart to Gilbert and Sullivan.

The Phantom of the Opera reviews - staff
I'd put off seeing Phantom for years, thinking it wasn't my kind of thing. But as Phantom approached its 25th anniversary, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I straight away loved the gothic and mysterious atmosphere, and as a musical lover I found the melodies incredibly satisfying. With all the leads delivering moving performances, I was won over that night.
There’s a reason this show has been running for years. Epic romantic music, a spectacular set and a thrilling story. The production still looks fantastic after all these years – the chandelier moment is worth waiting for!

Brilliant-brilliant -brilliant . Very professional, very emotional, very beautiful. Loved very minute of it, would go again.
Brilliant show stage amazing and performances. Took my daughter who was totally spell bound and would watch it over and over again a birthday treat as she was 21. Only complaint merchandise expensive.
I have seen at least 20 musicalls in London and New York. Phanthom of the Opera is besides CATS the very best. CATS is not running in London any longer but the Phantom is.....
We are not theatre goers, I have been to a handful of shows and usually come away thinking it is all so amateur dramatic, all that cardboard scenery spoils it, I’d rather see a film any day, but this one was different. We chose this show because I love the music and it is now such an iconic opera, so popular for so long so many people can’t be wrong. We picked London because I felt it would be the most professional venue with the best quality stars. We were not disappointed. With Anna O'Bryne as Christine and Marcus Lovett as The Phantom in this grade II listed theatre, which is over a hundred years old and surprisingly small but quite exquisite. The music was provided by an orchestra and made your hair stand on end in parts. The actors/opera singers were brilliant, all of them, clear, crisp, powerful voices with an amazing operatic range, they really made me believe the story. We saw members of the audience moved to tears and I must admit to feeling moved myself. I was glued to it, totally immersed. The part that impressed me the most was the scenery of the underground cavern with all the candles and chandeliers, the boat and the best song of the whole opera, the title song. I would go again and I recommend it highly.
Excellent! This show is definately from MUST things to do in London, for everyone
Is anything more spine-tingling than hearing the audience murmur drop to a hush and seeing the house lights go down? Can anything beat the thrill of watching the actors emerge from the wings, ready to give the performance of a lifetime?
At TheatrePeople.com we love these moments more than anything, and we want you to enjoy your live theatre experience just as much.
To get you in the mood for your visit to The Phantom Of The Opera, we’ve prepared this gorgeous gallery of images from the show for your perusal and pleasure. It’s a pre-show peek at the West End cast and key elements of the production that’s sure to up your anticipation for the real thing.
These images are from the current production of The Phantom Of The Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Adapted from the novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom Of The Opera is the story of beautiful soprano Christine, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, masked figure known only as The Phantom.
The Phantom Of The Opera has been seen by more than 130 million people across the globe. Its $5.6 billion in box-office returns are higher than that of any other stage play or film in history.
The Phantom Of The Opera was adapted for the stage by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe, who wrote the book and music, and Charles Hart who wrote the lyrics. The show originally premiered in the West End of London at Her Majesty’s Theatre in October 1986.
Phantom has won over 50 major theatre awards. Among them are three Oliviers, the most recent being the 2002 Oliver Audience Award for Most Popular Show, and seven Tony Awards including Best Musical.
Whether you’ve already booked your seats for The Phantom Of The Opera through us or you’re still making up your mind, we hope this gallery gives you a feeling for the essence of the show. We know where we’d like to be next time the curtain goes up at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Perhaps we’ll see you there.
The smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd is what theatre’s all about. It may be a cliché but we bet it’s true for you too. There’s nothing like being there. That said, we know that a trip to the theatre can be a big commitment in terms of preparation and travel.
Check out our video sampler of The Phantom of the Opera, currently playing at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the West End. It can’t give you the in-the-moment, large-as-life buzz of the real deal. But it’s the best way to get a taste of The Phantom of the Opera before you book your seat.
The story takes place far beneath the splendour and glory of the Paris Opera House, where a mysterious Phantom hides away. Disgraced by his physical appearance and feared by all, his love for the beautiful soprano Christine Daae is so great that her heart cannot resist.
The show is an eye-popping spectacle that’s drawn particular attention for its elegant costumes, beautiful sets and spectacular visual effects. Each performance has 230 costumes, 22 scene changes, 281 candles and uses 250 kg of dry ice and 10 fog and smoke machines.
The Phantom’s make-up takes two hours to apply and 30 minutes to remove. The prosthetics are fitted, setting immediately, then two wigs, two radio microphones and two contact lenses are positioned.
Harold Prince is the director of The Phantom of the Opera, with book and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe and lyrics by Charles Hart. The show originally premiered in London in October 1986.

Did You Know?
Michael Crawford, who originated the role of The Phantom of the Opera, had a memorable moment during the show’s early days.
Crawford had to board a remote-controlled boat at a crucial point in the show. But he was left all at sea after its signals got mixed up with those of the local fire brigade. Luckily, technology has moved on a bit since then.
Perhaps the show's most awesome effect was achieved by hand. It took five people four weeks to string together the 6,000 beads that make up its famous chandelier.
Incredibly, one New York usher has watched the show more than 9,000 times. Now that’s dedication. 100 million others have also bought tickets for the show.
If their taste is a reliable barometer, a trip to The Phantom of the Opera seems likely to be one of the best theatre visits you'll ever make.
