Love Never Dies!!!

For all of you Phantom Phans:

How excited are you all about the world premiere of 'Love Never Dies'!?!?!?!

I remember how, in February 2009, when I went to see 'Phantom' on stage, I got excited when I read in my programme that Andrew Lloyd Webber was creating the musical's sequel!

Little did I know then, that it would be over a year before it came out, and even then I would have to wait even longer to hear the music or even hope to see it one day.

Well, on March 9, the show 'Love Never Dies' made it's debut on the world stage.

I don't know too much about the show itself yet, nor have I heard much of the music, but it is to my understanding that the basic premise of the story is that the main characters from the original 'Phantom' return in the sequel. The events of this new show occur ten years hence from the mysteries of the prequel. Christine Daae (or "de Chagny", as she has since become) accepts an offer to preform on Coney Island. Unbeknownst to her, however, is that the Phantom is determined to prove that Love Never Dies...

(Please also note that I used these pictures from the site above. They are from the acutall show and I do not own them.)

Anyway, I've checked out the album, but, much to my dismay, it is out of my budget for now (Saving for my trip to China and all... and a $20- $30 CD is too much) but I do hope to be able to purchase it sometime in the near future!

So, what do you all think of this new sequel? Are you excited? Doubtful? Giddy? Skeptical? I think that I am a pretty healthy mix of it all!!!

Pitiful creature of darkness,
What kind of life have you known?
God give me courage to show you,
You are not alone...

skeptical? maybe just a little because there was no actual sequel, but it's Andrew Lloyd Weber we're talking about..
