Shortly after the free limited release of ‘The Phantom of the Opera‘ last week, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is now releasing his hit musical’s divisive (but equally fascinating) sequel ‘Love Never Dies’.
The 2010 sequel takes place 10 years after the events of ‘Phantom‘ and centers around the hidden love affair between The Phantom and Christine. Because you know, love never dies after all.
Webber’s free theatrical shows stand as his initiative for art appreciation at home amidst the worldwide theatre shutdowns due to the Coronavirus.
The YouTube project also serves as a fundraising project with charity organization ‘The Actors Fund‘, as last week’s showing raised over $400,000 for coronavirus relief.
Meanwhile, Webber’s ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ and ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ have also been streamed for a limited time to theater fans’ delight.
‘Love Never Dies’ is set to drop this Friday, April 24 on Webber’s YouTube channel ‘The Shows Must Go On!‘. Similar to his ‘Phantom‘ release, the video itself will only be up for 48 hours.
