Andrew Lloyd Webber diagnosed with cancer

Andrew Lloyd Webber, the composer of famous musical "Phantom of the Opera", has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, his spokeswoman said Sunday.

According to a statement from his publicists, the 61-year-old Lloyd Webber's condition is in its early stages. "Andrew is now undergoing treatment and expects to be fully back at work before the end of the year," the spokeswoman said.

The British composer recently announced he was staging a sequel to "The Phantom of the Opera". "Love Never Dies" is scheduled to open in London's West End in March 2010.

Earlier this month, Lloyd Webber told media that while the story picks up where "Phantom" left off, he doesn't regard it as a sequel - "It's a standalone piece," he said.

In "Love Never Dies," the Phantom leaves Paris for Coney Island at the turn of the century, which Lloyd Webber said was like Las Vegas "and then triple it."

Lloyd Webber's other hit musicals include "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Cats" and "Starlight Express."

The composer has won seven Tony Awards, three Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. In 2006, he was awarded the Kennedy Center Honor. He was knighted in 1992 and named to Britain's House of Lords in 1997.
