Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber says he's had to deal with phantoms offstage


Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Andrew Lloyd Webber says he's had to deal with phantoms offstage. The composer said in an interview that a poltergeist caused some mischief around his London home. Lloyd Webber said he never saw the ghost but did see some weird activity, like his theater scripts being placed in neat piles in very odd places. He didn't want the uninvited guest, so Lloyd Webber called in a priest to bless his house and force the spirit to leave. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
