Love Never Dies Reviews
Despite a lot of negative comments and reviews, there are good points about this production that I appreciate. First, I loved the scene where the phantom recognizes himself in the child. Second, the cast is great! Christine sang with such passion and the phantom shows a lot of his human side. He is a lot more 'human', flesh and blood and all than the first production.
About the music. There are a couple new songs in the sequel that I love, e.g. "Love Never Dies" (of course). I like how some of the old, familiar tunes show up to remind us of the previous.
However, some of the same tunes keep repeating itself and it gets a bit monotonous as the production goes. Same old problem as Andrew Lloyd Webber's new revival of the Wizard of Oz.
The plot is lame. But the flow, the set design, the costumes, the atmosphere are all good. Definitely deserve a lot more credits than it was given.
