Love Never Dies, the sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, will arrive in movie theatres on February 28, and according to Andrew Lloyd Webber, all hope might not be lost for bringing the new musical to Broadway. He told Reuters: "I think it will inevitably come, at some point. But in many ways I now feel like I've closed the chapter on it. The film that's being shown is something I'm very, very proud of. So in a way it doesn't really matter if it comes tomorrow or five years' time. But I'm sure it will."
Making its first appearance in the United States, NCM Fathom and Omniverse Vision will present Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies, the long awaited continuation to The Phantom of the Opera, in a fully-staged production pre-recorded at The Regent Theatre in Melbourne, Australia. This exclusive showing of Love Never Dies will be broadcast to select U.S. movie theaters for two nights only beginning with the premiere event on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m. local time; followed by an encore presentation on Wednesday, March 7.
