‘Love Never Dies’ eyes preem date

'Phantom' sequel hopes to bow in March

Love Never Dies,” the new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical extending the story of “The Phantom of the Opera,” will premiere in London “in March of next year, and on Broadway in the same season,” Webber confirmed.

The composer was speaking at a press conference at the Eurovision Song Contest, for which he has co-written the United Kingdom’s competing song.

Word circulated last week that the tuner’s preem, originally set for this fall, had been delayed, a sked change attributed to Webber’s decision to re-orchestrate the score. Webber’s comments mark the first official confirmation of the new timeline.

Productions of “Love Never Dies” have also been proposed in Toronto and in an Asian market to be determined. Those stagings would likely follow close on the heels of the London and Broadway incarnations.
