Everton chairman Bill Kenwright will produce a touring production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's LOVE NEVER DIES, to debue at the Churchhill Theatre, Bromley in January, 2013, according to rumours posted on WhatsOnStage.com.
"Andrew Lloyd Webber's company is thought to be planning to focus instead on licensing his back-catalogue, with producer Bill Kenwright having "first call" on the touring rights," commented WhatsOnStage.com.
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 ten 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".
LOVE NEVER DIES ran at the Adelphi Theatre in London's West End from March 2010 until August 2011. Ramin Karimloo was nominated for the Best Actor in a Musical Olivier for his role 'The Phantom', which he played with Tam Mutu as his alternate.
