Andrew Lloyd Webber, whose latest musical, Whistle Down the Wind began previews Dec. 6 for its world premiere in Washington DC, told told reporters that he's ready for a rest.

Webber, who addressed a luncheon this week at the National Press Club, reportedly said ``This is the first time I can truthfully say that I don't have an idea for a [new] show at all.''

Daily Variety reported Webber as saying he is toying with the idea of reworking Aspects of Love, which he called his "favorite" in a career that has included Cats, Evita, Sunset Boulevard and Jesus Christ Superstar.

He reportedly said the only thing he had in mind was writing a book about his art collection.

``At this point, I've written more musicals than Rodgers and Hammerstein did when they were together,'' he was reported saying. ``Perhaps it's time to take stock of things and recharge the batteries.'' -- By Robert Viagas
