Very interesting.

I know the theatre that housed \"Phantom of the Opera\" in Las Vegas was fairly refurbished, or something like that, and I know Lloyd Webber was offered to contribute to the construction of all new theatres playing his shows forever. That would take place in Vegas. I don\'t know if it\'s still happening?

I\'m surprised that, if what you say is completely true, these things have never happened in London. And it\'s not like the West End seasons are full of room, there are shows galore trying to get in, beating down the door, searching for theatres in vain. Is there even room to build this thing? And if it\'s built, I don\'t think they\'ll just close it after a few years, what a waste of money that would be. If it\'s built, the show will run forever

And I believe that\'s something Jim would want, I also believe he deserves that
