Stephen Ward musical to be revived

Tony Award winning lyricist and book writer Don Black has revealed in a recent interview that the musical STEPHEN WARD is being reworked for a revival. The musical has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber with  lyrics and book co-written by Black and Christopher Hampton. It opened in London in 2013 to mediocre notices and ran for almost four months.

Black explained what he thinks went wrong with STEPHEN WARD. "I think it should have opened quietly, somewhere like the Almeida or Donmar Warehouse, without any of the expectations of a big Lloyd Webber musical. It was also a bad title. But we've written a new song for it recently, so we're working on it again, and it will be unveiled in the next year or two."
