“I’m incredibly proud and honoured to be able to bring this production to U.S. cinemas nationwide,” said Lloyd Webber. “I hope very much that audiences take Love Never Dies to their hearts in the same way they have The Phantom of the Opera.”
Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies is a follow-up to the award winning Phantom of the Opera, featuring a 21-piece orchestra and an impressive cast of 36 including actors Ben Lewis as the Phantom and Anna O’Byrne as Christine Daaé. The cinematic production, directed by Brett Sullivan, brings the audience into a world of passion, obsession and romance. The captivating love story of the Phantom and Christine continues in New York’s playground, Coney Island. After his disappearance from the Paris Opera house, the Phantom begins a new life in New York amongst the freaks and side shows. The only thing missing from his new life is musical protégée Christine. In an effort to win back his love, the Phantom lures Christine and her family to this new and sparkling unknown world.
“The very best of Broadway is coming to local movie theaters again in this once-in-lifetime opportunity to see the next chapter in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom saga, Love Never Dies,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of Fathom. “This Fathom event gives fans their first chance to see this highly anticipated musical long before it opens in the U.S.”
