The Phantom of Coney Island

Even Broadway loves a sequel!

It seems that Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is about to unveil his latest money maker on the world, "Love Never Dies", a sequel to his big hit, "The Phantom of the Opera".

From the official press release:

“LOVE NEVER DIES” continues the story of ‘The Phantom’, who has moved from his lair in the Paris Opera House to haunt the fairgrounds of Coney Island, far across the Atlantic. Set 10 years after the mysterious disappearance of ‘The Phantom’ from Paris, this show is a rollercoaster ride of obsession and intrigue...in which music and memory can play cruel tricks...and ‘The Phantom’ sets out to prove that, indeed, “LOVE NEVER DIES”.

I dunno about this, something tells me they are going to need a much bigger chandelier to drop this time.
