God is having a tough month on Broadway _ "Godspell" is closing, "Jesus Christ Superstar" is on life support and now comes word that "Sister Act" is going to theatrical heaven.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's much-awaited sequel to "The Phantom of the Opera" is called "Love Never Dies," but the musical defied its title: after a short life in London, it died. Now he hopes it can be resurrected.
"Andrew is like a bulldog with these things: He will not let anything go," said Glenn Slater, who supplied lyrics and the book for the sequel. "He has been fighting tenaciously for this to get its proper day in the sun. Knock wood, maybe this Australian production does it because it certainly seems to have changed peoples' minds about the piece."
"Once it was up, we were able to see where the flaws were and we were able to see where we misjudged and where we miscalculated," said Slater during a recent phone conversation. "We hadn't quite nailed it yet."
