Alastair Macaulay reviews the new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, but has serious reservations about the creator’s ability to break with the past.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>There's a big-spirited original show inside The Beautiful Game, the latest Andrew Lloyd Webber production, but what's holding it back is Lloyd Webber himself. Watching and listening to it is like observing a civil war in Lloyd Webber's own mind. You can tell at every stage that he wants to break out and do something new - new subject-matter, new musical style, new production values, new choreography - but the quintessential triteness of the man, above all the terrible poverty of his rhythmic sense, keeps turning this, his latest effort, into a samey, formulaic, sentimental piece of pulp. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>From the link below go to the main article. <BR> <A HREF="Http://timeoff.ft.com/timeoff" TARGET=_blank>Http://timeoff.ft.com/timeoff</A> <BR>
