LONDON — He’s done the Bible, felines, operatic phantoms and Argentine politics. So what is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical about? Sex – as well as politics, spying, social revolution and the Cold War. In 1963, the “Profumo affair” was the Big Bang.
…The musical, which opens at London’s Aldwych theatre in December, is Lloyd Webber’s first new show since the “Phantom” sequel “Love Never Dies,” which opened in 2010 to mixed reviews. Book and lyrics are by Christopher Hampton and Don Black – the same team that wrote Lloyd Webber’s “Sunset Boulevard.”
