LOVE NEVER DIES Extends Run thru March 2011 in London
The West End's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's LOVE NEVER DIES has extended ticket sales through March 2011. The show opened at the Adelphi Theatre in London on March 9, 2010.
As previously reported, LOVE NEVER DIES will also be hitting Australia and Toronto with different teams in place in each city. No specific dates, timelines or names for casting or creative have been revealed.
The news was reported as unconfirmed in last week's New York Times, that Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Love Never Dies' might not be making an apearance in Broadway's Spring 2011 season after all. Though a spokesperson for the Phantom sequel claims that the show is still set to play at the Neil Simon Theatre with a date to be announced for the Spring, the paper reports that director Jack O'Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell have left the production to focus on 'Catch Me if You Can.'
Michael Riedel adds some additional details in the New York Post including that they now plan to bring the production first to Toronto (directed by Craig Revel Horwood) and Australia with the best production to then head to Broadway.
There is no official word yet on any of the above.
The principal characters of The Phantom of the Opera continue their stories in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies. 10 years after the mysterious disappearance of The Phantom from the Paris Opera House, Christine Daaé 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.
