LONDON, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- British theatrical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest musical, "The Woman in White," will open on Broadway but not on Nov. 10 as previously announced.

The musical instead is now set to open sometime in the spring of 2005, it was announced by the show's producers Thursday.

The musical based on Wilkie Collins' 1860 ghost thriller has been playing to sold-out houses in London even though its star, Michael Crawford of "Phantom of the Opera" fame, is currently on vacation. No reason was given for the delay but pre-Broadway performances of the show in Chicago at the LaSalle Bank Theater were announced from Nov. 15 through Jan. 8.

Lloyd Webber, 56, has a history of Broadway hits including "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "Evita," "Cats," "Starlight Express," "Phantom of the Opera," currently in its 17th year in New York, and "Aspects of Love."
