Quick Takes

Return of the Phantom

October 09, 2009|David Ng

"Love Never Dies," the long-awaited musical sequel to "The Phantom of the Opera," officially has an opening date.

Andrew Lloyd Webber said Thursday that the musical will first open in London at the Adelphi Theatre on March 9. And it will open on Broadway on Nov. 11, 2010, at an as-yet-unnamed theater.

Set in Coney Island in New York, "Love Never Dies" picks up 10 years after the story of "Phantom," as the title character moves from his lair in the Paris Opera House to the fairgrounds of the popular Long Island locale. The show will star Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine in the London production.

Tony-winning director Jack O'Brien will stage the production. The music is by Lloyd Webber, who co-wrote the book; the lyrics are by Glenn Slater.
