They say on Broadway: "There is no limit to the number of people who won’t buy tickets to a show they won’t want to see!". For the first time in his career, Lord Lloyd-Webber has made this experience himself. His latest show, Stephen Ward, will close in two weeks. It joins a list of under-performing Lloyd Webber West End shows: The Beautiful Game, The Woman in White and his Phantom of the Opera sequel, Love Never Dies. But even amid such commendable company, it’s his biggest flop to date. Fortunately his ego is tough enough and his wallet is deep enough to take the hit.
