As any Phan knows, Love Never Dies is the sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. While all Phans love the original Phantom, we seem to stand divided on thoughts about LND. There are those of us who love it and those of us who hate it.
Then there are those Phans like me who are kind of in the middle ground. Let me explain. While I find the storyline for LND totally ridiculous, I absolutely love the music (all except for that ridiculous Bathing Beauty. I mean, come on, guys. Can you really see the Phantom, a musical genius, dumbing down his art, his precious music, to write such a silly song? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Lol.)
Not to mention that PHANTASTIC set! I had the pleasure of seeing LND at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, also simply referred to by us TN natives as TPAC, in Nashville, and let me tell you. It was so amazing! The props were out of this world and looked really impressive up on stage. The performance was truly one of the best that I’d ever been to – despite my qualms with the storyline.
So I’m interested in how many of my blog followers are Phans of LND. Please cast you votes in the poll below.
Also, have you seen the show performed live? If so, please feel free to share your experiences below in the comments.
Have a PHANTASTIC Phriday!
