Four days of performances for Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies, the sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, have been taken off sale at London's Adelphi Theatre for the week commencing Nov. 22.
Performances are set to resume Nov. 26. During the shutdown, revisions will be made to the show. A spokesman said, "Some changes were written up over the summer and destined for the Australian production and as they make improvements to the show we'd be mad not to put them into the Adelphi (production in London)."
There was no word on who is implementing the changes, directorially. Jack O'Brien and Jerry Mitchell, the orginal director and choreographer, respectively, are currently working on the Broadway bow of Catch Me If You Can that has been booked to open at the Neil Simon, beginning performances March 7. Ironically, the Simon is the Broadway house that was originally due to house the Broadway transfer of Love Never Dies this fall.
Further updates will be posted as they become available.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
