London's Daily Mail reports that Karimloo and Boggess will star in both the London and Broadway productions of Love Never Dies.
Lloyd Webber told the London paper, "I personally feel that what will now happen is that Sierra and Ramin will open in London early next year and then go to New York in the autumn of 2010. I think once the album comes out, hopefully before Christmas, a lot of singers will come out of the woodwork and we'll find new Christines and Phantoms for the other productions."
The creative team also includes director Jack O'Brien, lyricist Glenn Slater, choreographer Jerry Mitchell and music supervisor Gareth Valentine.
Sierra Boggess made her Broadway debut as Ariel in The Little Mermaid, which currently plays the Lunt-Funtanne Theatre. Her stage credits also include Christine in Phantom Las Vegas, Les Misérables, West Side Story and the world premiere of Princesses.
Ramin Karimloo, who was born in Iran and launched his career in Canada, has performed in the West End productions of Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon.
