‘Phantom’ sequel delayed until spring 2010May 9th, 2009 - 1:01 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 9 (ANI): The wait is long for ‘Phantom’ lovers, for a planned sequel to ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ has reportedly been pushed back until spring 2010.
According to London papers, ‘Love Never Dies’-Andrew Lloyd Webber’s upcoming tuner in the ‘Phantom’ franchise-has been delayed for almost a year
Directed by Jack O’Brien, ‘Love Never Dies’ was originally scheduled to kick off this fall with a London premiere, followed quickly by productions in Toronto, Gotham and an undetermined Asian territory.
And the reason behind the delay has been given to be the re-orchestration of the score, reports Variety magazine.
As the London opening, which was expected to be toplined by Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess, has been pushed back, the dates of successive productions, including Broadway, remain a mystery. (ANI)
