Sound of Music Waiting to Land in West End

News   Sound of Music Waiting to Land in West End

Wearing his impresario's hat, Andrew Lloyd Webber has said that he still intends to bring a revival of The Sound of Music into the West End - the trouble is that there isn't an available theatre at the moment.

This news comes after Camden Council's recent suggestion to the management of the Shaftesbury Theatre that it find a new home for Umoja within a week.

Fortunately for Lloyd Webber, his smaller-scale revival of Daisy Pulls It Off, a pastiche of the sort of Edwardian schoolgirl adventures churned out by the yard by writers like Angela Brazil, has already got a home earmarked for it in April - the Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue.
