NEW YORK — Broadway will have to wait a bit longer to find out what happens to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom.

The producers of “Love Never Dies” announced last week that the sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera” will now open in New York in spring 2011 instead of this November. As a reason, they cited the composer’s “postoperative problems” following his successful surgery for prostate cancer last year.

According to the statement, Lloyd Webber’s doctors have advised him not to travel long distances by air “until the problem has been investigated.”

In the meantime, he will work on “Over the Rainbow,” a BBC reality television series in which a young woman will be chosen to play Dorothy in Lloyd Webber’s London stage version of “The Wizard of Oz.”
