Tim Rice Licks His Wound

The great Tim Rice who as Andrew Lloyd Webber's partner created such blockbusters as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita, and continued his stellar career as the lyricist of the Disney hits Aladdin and The Lion King has landed a flop with his latest West End musical, From Here To Eternity. The show will close on 29 March, the same day as Andrew's Stephen Ward, pulls down the final curtain. It comes as no surprise that Tim still thinks his work had all it takes. Disappointed about the failure he said: "The public don't seem interested in musicals with new material anymore. They just want old songs repackaged." He even threatened to never again write another musical. No, Tim, I have a better idea: The time has come to get back together with Andrew.
