1. CLEARLY I meant "loan" and not "load".
2. Yes.. I think that is where it will be telling, and interesting to watch what unfolds. They formally closed the production entity, so a return to Her Majesty's would require the consent of Lloyd Webber, even if Cameron retains all rights outright. If it were to be announced in another theatre, we would have all of the required answers there.

It has been interesting to watch this unfold on the UK theatre chat boards, where the Phantom Phans are unleashing a bit of hell. Their revolts against the 2020 UK Tour and the World Tour for having ANY differences to the West End staging are striking... and the contempt that some of them seem to even have for the Broadway production under the tight supervision of Prince not being allowed the free reign of the London staging... "How dare you change the show from the original? But how dare you make it 100% Hal Prince's?"

(The 2020 UK Tour does retain the original staging - with allowances, as expected - but with fewer actors. That will undoubtedly find its way into the West End version to be greeted by Phans chaining themselves to the door. I wonder if a similar path will be taken in New York.)
