Love Never Dies In Concert to run at Theatre Royal Drury Lane this Summer

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies will return to London’s West End this Summer in a special concert performance at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera sequel, Love Never Dies will play two performances on the 21st and 22nd August.

Broadway legend Norm Lewis (Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert, Jesus Christ Superstar) stars as The Phantom after a hugely successful run as the first African-American Phantom in the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera.

Celinde Schoenmaker (Les Misérables, The Light in the Piazza) currently starring in Guys & Dolls at the Bridge Theatre will play Christine, following her appearance in London’s West End for the 30th anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera.

Norm Lewis comments: My love for Andrew’s Love Never Dies meant this was the quickest yes, the moment I was asked! I am honored to don the iconic Phantom mask yet again, and continue the story of a character that forever changed my life. And to perform it at the famous Theatre Royal Drury Lane? There’s nothing greater. I cannot wait to be reconnected with the London audiences!”

Described by The Daily Telegraph as “one of the greatest of all Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals”, Love Never Dies returns to the story of The Phantom of the Opera 10 years after the Phantom’s disappearance from the Paris Opera House. Escaped to a new life in New York, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love – Christine Daaé. In a final bid to win her back, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave to America to perform one final time. As old wounds are reopened and forgotten memories unlocked, The Phantom sets out to prove that, indeed, Love Never Dies.

The original production premiered in 2010 at the Adelphi Theatre starring Ramin Karimloo, David Thaxton and Celia Graham.

Love Never Dies In Concert, which features the sensational ‘Til I Hear You Sing and the heart-breaking Love Never Dies, is accompanied by the 27-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra (LMTO), and will run at Theatre Royal Drury Lane on 21st (7.30pm) and 22nd August (2.30pm).

Shaun Kerrison (My Fair Lady, A Christmas Carol) directs. Further casting and creatives to be announced.

Love Never Dies In Concert is produced by Fourth Wall Live and the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, and arranged with the permission of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group, with a score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and a book by Lloyd Webber, Slater, Ben Elton and Frederick Forsyth.
