Andrew Lloyd Webber
has abandoned his long-held plans to compose a musical based on controversial novel The Master and Margarita
. Lloyd Webber had hoped to adapt Mikhail Bulgakov's book, but has now decided the Russian novel is too dense to be turned into a musical.
He says, "I've decided it's un-doable. It's just too difficult for an audience to contemplate. It's a very complicated novel."
