Sequel to ‘Phantom’ to debut next year

phantomAndrew Lloyd Webber’s popular musical Phantom of the Opera was based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l’Opéra by Gaston Leroux.  The famed composer transformed the story into an international theatre sensation running on Broadway for over two decades. 

Webber plans to continue the story of the Phantom and his long lost love against a Brooklyn backdrop in Phantom: Love Never Dies.  In the new play, Christine will reunite with the Phantom character on Coney Island.  Though details of the cast have yet to be released, Webber hints at a big surprise in the lead role.  His sequel will make a historic splash with simultaneous openings in Shanghai, New York and London in 2009.
