Phantom Lyricist Charles Hart involved in Love Never Dies Revamp

I have already mentioned that Bill Kenwright is overseeing the inclusion of some changes to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies when it closes for four days next month at the Adelphi Theatre, but now it seems there is a new lyricist on board as well.

Charles Hart has been brought in to re-jig the words to some of the numbers so that they fit the revamped production.  He is best known  re-writing the lyrics and contributing to the book of  The Phantom of the Opera, as well as  co-writing (with Don Black) the lyrics to Lloyd Webber's 1989 musical Aspects of Love.

Apparently Kenwright is not re-directing the production as first thought but is helping to correct some of the show's problems, including the ending which in my opinion really does not work.
