Love Never Dies now booking to 28 May 2011 at Adelphi
Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies, the sequel to Phantom of the Opera - has again extended its booking period by another 2 months - tickets are now on sale to 28 May 2011.
It has also been announced that the show will be taking a break between 22 – 25 November (inclusive). Statement from The Really Useful Company say, "Some changes were written up over the summer and destined for the Australian production, and as they make improvements to the show we'd be mad not to put them into the Adelphi (production in London)."
The musical opened at the Adelphi Theatre 9 March 2010, following previews from 20 Feb, to average notices from the popular press: Michael Billington for The Guardian says "There is much to enjoy in Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical." Benedict Nightingale for The Times says, "Dismally implausible plot." Daily Telegraph says, "Lloyd Webber’s finest show since the original Phantom".
The show currently features Ramin Karimloo as The Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine
Ten years after the mysterious disappearance of The Phantom from the Paris Opera House, Christine Daae accepts an offer to come to America and perform at New York’s fabulous new playground of the world – Coney Island. Christine arrives in New York with her husband Raoul and their son Gustave. She soon discovers the identity of the anonymous impresario who has lured her from France to sing.
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Glenn Slater. It is directed by Jack O’Brien, designed by Bob Crowley, choreography by Jerry Mitchell.
