NOT TO BE MISSED
I came down from NJ to see Love Never Dies at the Hippodrome in Baltimore. I ended up seeing it 4 times. The show is absolutely amazing. The sets, the music, the choreography, the performances will leave you breathless. The leads, their understudies (I saw the understudies for the Phantom and for Christine) and the ensemble give it their all. It's just a beautiful, beautiful show - as far as I am concerned, it is ready for Broadway.

DON'T LISTEN TO THE NAYSAYERS!
Fabulous show. The staging was phenomenal.. The story is an enjoyable Shakespearean type, traditional musical. Music is great. I left the show singing the songs - to me a sure sign of a good show. Gustav was outstanding as were the other actors. I am not sure why some people are disappointed. My only thought is they really just didn't want a sequel to Phantom of the Opera in the first place. If that is you, just watch it as if it was an independent show. You will love it. I saw and enjoyed Phantom of the Opera several times yet was not the least bit disappointed in they show. Honestly, it was much more enjoyable than many current award winners. I would definitely see it again.

If you have seen the Phantom, you must see this. The singing, costumes and sets were spectacular at the Cadillac Palace in Chicago. We had balcony seats and were pleased with the view. Far left or right may not be as good due to some equipment. My husband and I absolutely recommend this for a night out. The Italian Village Restaurant was our choice of dining before the show and was excellent. Make plans, relax and enjoy dining and a great play!

FOR THOSE MESMERIZED BY PHANTOM...
I saw Love Never Dies on its last performance at the Smith Center. I had followed various reviews and had obtained a DVD of the long running Australian production so I, unashamedly, was already hooked. There was no need to develop the story or the characters, I already knew them. This production continues the Phantoms fascination with Christine, of course, he still loves her. In the days following the fire, 10 years earlier, there was one more meeting between them and this is actually the beginning of the play. Had there been more anticipation of Christine's arrival to New York and stage time regarding Meg and her mothers role in the Phantoms escape from Paris, the reviewers might have been more satisfied. My only regret is that the best song, I believe, opens the play and should have closed the first act. As its written, though, it works because we KNOW the characters. Loved it...recommend to true Phantom fans. The reviewers may not get it but you ABSOLUTELY will.

LOVE NEVER DIES, FEB 15, 2018, CHICAGO
Last night, a friend and I went to see "Love Never Dies" at the Cadillac Palace Theatre in Chicago. What a treat it was! The beautiful sets absolutely took my breath away - and the costumes! So colorful and elegant, I couldn't take my eyes off the stage. Oh, and the singing... you don't want the songs to end. So much heart and feeling. It's the next morning for me as I write this, and I'm at work, and I can't concentrate on work because my thoughts are still back at the theater, enjoying the show again and again. The carnival characters were astounding - especially the main three. The actors who played their roles... it was like the melody of a perfect dream when they were on stage (Squelch, Fleck and Gangle.) Really, their voices and energy... I enjoyed their segments most of all, they were so vivid and full of magical fun. They could have a spin-off show and I'd be there! This current tour needs to be seen by all - I absolutely recommend it.

I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!
I went in thinking if it turned out to be a usual part II I could at least get out and beat the traffic. I could not leave my seat. The performances were great. The songs tied in to the first Phantom. The set was amazing. I was in tears by the performances. The Phantom at the Pantages theater was hard to beat but I loved it more. The Fisher theater is beautiful.
