New cast of Love Never Dies?

Following the news that Sierra Boggess, currently playing Christine in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies at the Adelphi Theatre, will leave the role on 5 March to head to Broadway, more rumours are circulating over the cast changes for the show.

Celia Graham is widely tipped to replace Boggess on 7 March, following roles including Christine in Phantom and Sierra’s current understudy in Love Never Dies.

Also, David Thaxton is rumoured to be replacing Joseph Millson as Raoul. Thaxton was a hit in Passion at the Donmar Warehouse last year alongside Elena Roger, earning an Olivier Award nod for best actor in a new musical in the recent nominations.

Summer Strallen, who plays Meg in the show, will also be leaving to take on a stage adaptation of classic movie musical Top Hat, joining Tom Chambers to recreate the on-screen roles made famous by Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

  1. Love Never Dies was awesome and I loved the show, and it looked beautiful and sounded beautiful. also i was happy to read about the laurence olivier awards for it. (i know phantom means a lot to people, but love never dies is only a show… not sure it merits hysterics and death treats).

    I highly recommend you see it even though it’s not as good as the original.

  2. All i know is that I loved the show, and it looked beautiful and sounded beautiful. also i was happy to read about the laurence olivier awards for it. (i know phantom means a lot to people, but love never dies is only a show… not sure it merits hysterics and death treats). isn’t it just another nice – original – thing to have going on in the west end as opposed to another musical “based on a movie?”

  3. Phantom Needs NO Sequel!
    Webber has destroyed the characters we all know from the original production of The Phantom of the Opera. Phantom fans and theatre-goers alike have never waited with breathless anticipation for a sequel to Phantom. Lyric changes and reordering of songs has done nothing to change the fact that the characters from the original have been destroyed beyond recognition. A repackaged marketing scheme and theatrical ‘razzle dazzle’ are a poor substitute for a plausible storyline and genuine audience enthusiasm.

    We maintain our initial position that Love Should Die.

    1. Phantom DOES need a sequel – Phantom ends with the intrigue of the Phantom still caring, still being around – I loved the show – also The Phantom of the Opera was wonderful too – it helped that I saw RAMIN playing both roles saw how he had changed over the years also WE SAW WHAT HAPPENED TO CHRISTINE – Bril
