Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber announced details Thursday of his new musical "Love Never Dies," according to the Los Angeles Times. A sequel to his mega-hit "Phantom of the Opera," it will be set 10 years later, and the Phantom will have moved from the Paris Opera House to Coney Island in New York.

The show opens in March in London and in November 2010 on Broadway.

Previously, Webber had committed to a new version of  "The Wizard of Oz," with some new songs written by Webber and lyricist Glen Slatter. In conjunction with the "Oz" show, Webber will oversee a reality show on the BBC whose function is to find someone to play Dorothy and a dog to play Toto in the upcoming West End verision to that show.

The TV reality show, at first slated for early spring, will now likely debut in late spring, given that  Webber’s  "Phantom" is set for a March debut.
