Another excellent review has been submitted for Love Never Dies.
Thursday, 11 March 2010
New musical Love Never Dies has been rated as Andrew Lloyd Webber's best since Phantom of the Opera by one critic.
Charles Spencer, writing for the Telegraph, admitted that he was a little unsure beforehand about how good the show would be and whether it would live up to its predecessor.
However, the journalist said he need not have worried, because it was excellent.
The score received particular praise from Mr Spencer, who said that it sent shivers down his spine, while the creepy scenery of Coney Island was also admired.
Meanwhile, Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine were also noted to have "a real spark" between them.
Commenting on the potential impact of Love Never Dies on London theatre fans, Mr Spencer said: "I suspect its creepy allure will linger potently in the memory when frothier shows have been long forgotten."
Paul Taylor of the Independent also gave the musical a glowing review this week, saying that it was fluent and sumptuous.
