Theatrical musical production "Bombay Dreams," that marked the West End's first sizable Anglo-Asian hit, will close on June 13, 2004 at the Apollo Victoria Theater after a profitable two-year run. But the musical, scored by musician A.R. Rahman and produced by music producer Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group Ltd., will be relaunched later this year for a Great Britain tour and a return visit in 2005 to a smaller London venue, this time in the extensively tweaked version that is about to start performances in New York.
